AURORA, Ill., February 1, 2017 — After rising at the beginning of January, pump prices are back on the decline in Illinois and northern Indiana heading into February. Illinois prices are averaging $2.28, a decrease from $2.48 a month ago but still up considerably from $1.69 a year ago. Indiana drivers are paying on average $2.07, down from $2.40 a month ago but still up from $1.63 a year ago.
 
“Both Illinois and Indiana drivers saw large weekly declines in pump prices last week.” said Beth Mosher, director of public affairs for AAA – The Auto Club Group, “The low demand and abundant supply should help to continue to push prices even lower as we head into February.”
