CHICAGO (CBS) – At one time, $5 per gallon gas seemed like a farfetched idea, but that is no longer the case.
As CBS 2’s Roseanne Tellez reports, as of Monday, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the Chicago area is $4.11, compared with $3.71 a month ago, and about $3.10 a gallon at this time a year ago.
Some experts say $5 per gallon gas is possible by Memorial Day.
Drivers Monday morning were practically numb to the price spikes.
