WARRENVILLE, Ill. -- Price wars between Speedway and Shell gas stations in the western suburb of Warrenville are reflective of the bigger picture across Chicagoland.

The prices are slightly higher throughout Chicagoland but in the big picture the price of a barrel of crude oil, which is used to produce gas, has been on the slide since 2014.

That means many Americans for better or worse are doing more driving these days and have a few more bucks in their pockets.

In northwest Indiana, WGN saw gas prices in the $1.60 to $1.70 range in many places.

But not everybody is happy with these prices by any means.
