Going Up! Another Report From Gas War Alley

Gas prices are going through the roof again in Chicago. We are up at least fifty cents a gallon in the last two weeks. I bought gas at Sam's Club last week for $3.59 (which was about twenty cents lower than the stations on the strip at the time; I caught them on Sunday before they marked it up).

Gas at the Shell station today was $4.29. The Speedway across the street was at $4.25, as were a couple of other stations up the street.

If you're coming in from out of town for Musecon, make sure to fill up before you get into the Chicago area.
