AURORA, Ill., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Illinois and Indiana drivers aren't feeling much love for these February gas prices. Both Illinois and Indiana drivers are currently paying on average, $3.62 for a gallon of regular unleaded. This marks the highest price ever for a February start.

This price is still $.12 lower than last year.

In northern Indiana, gas prices averaged $3.30 in January, which is up $.03 from December 2012 and down $.08 from January 2012. For both Illinois and Indiana, this is the second highest January monthly average ever.

"Drivers in Illinois and Indiana are seeing significant price increases due to rising crude oil prices, decreased gasoline supplies and area refinery issues," said Beth Mosher, AAA Chicago spokesperson.
