Rockford Gas Prices Start to Decline

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Average gas prices in the Rockford area have fallen 15 cents per gallon this week, averaging at $3.95 per gallon.

Yet, according to GasBuddy, this week's average price is still five cents per gallon higher than a month ago and 31 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

"(There is) relief in the Great Lakes, a region that had been plagued with refining issues that have seemingly been resolved," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst.
