thanks for the analysis which proves what I am very unhappy about. Most of the local prices around the tri-cities are $3.85-3.95, well above the national average. Further, while kane county gas pricing is traditionally lower than dupage, we have more recently been higher than them. WHY?

I assume one must have a sam's card-costco card to purchase gas at those places, so it may not be the cheapest avaiable to all.
