Just south of you here in Chicago's NW'burbs and it's not only going up, 
but spiking too.

2 weeks ago: $1.48/gal for the cheapest grade
13 days ago: $1.74 for the same gas (25-cent hike overnight)

1 week ago: $1.56
6 days ago: $1.78

So it's hard to tell from one day to the next, it'll be about a 
buck-n-a-half, and then spike way up again. Used to be a rule-of-thumb, 
fill-up on Tuesday or Wednesday, but now there's just no rhyme or reason.

I know we pay considerably less than the rest of the world, but still, 
25-cents per gallon overnight, and then back down 4 days later?

Somethin' ain't right. And, I know it's supposed to get worse.
