Local gas prices lowest in state, across midwest

Soaring gasoline prices ring up at pumps around much of the Midwest, with customers paying up to $4.39 a gallon at the pump in Chicago, $3.89 in Louisville and $3.75 in Indianapolis.

While much of the Hoosier state is feeling the drain from those prices, Jackson, Jennings and Lawrence counties are the only three in Indiana with prices under $3.50 a gallon on average.

An even closer look shows Seymour’s gas prices are currently ranging between $3.29 and $3.31 a gallon, 30 to 40 cents cheaper than Crothersville prices, which are ranging between $3.59 and $3.79 a gallon this week.
