The price of a gallon of regular is down about 6 cents in Illinois compared to a week ago according to AAA. It's $2.36 per gallon, which is about two cents higher than the national average.

Rockford drivers enjoyed a nearly five cent drop in prices since last Monday, paying an average of $2.29 a gallon. That still isn't close to the cheapest fill-ups in the state: It's $2.09 in Champaign/Urbana.
