AAA: $3 gas - or higher- average for 1,000 consecutive days

September 18, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Wednesday's national average price for unleaded gasoline is $3.52, which is about 35-cents less than it was last year. However, that drop still isn't enough to bring gas prices down to $3 or below.

AAA says the nation has averaged $3 or higher for an unleaded gallon of gas every day since December 23, 2010.

In Illinois, the current average drivers will pay at the pump is $3.68, according to AAA.
