The latest Lundberg survey says the highest gas price in the lower 48 U.S. states is in Chicago.

The average here stands at $4.45 a gallon.

But there is good news. The report says gas prices may have peaked or could peak soon if the price of crude oil holds steady.

According to the website , gas prices dropped 10.5 cents a gallon in the past week in Chicago. An analyst for Gasbuddy says refineries are boosting production.
