The good news is that Rockford gas prices have been trending downward for the last four weeks.

Not all gas stations are priced the same. If you shop around you will save money, sometimes as much as 40 cents a gallon. The lowest price spotted in the stateline was $2.31/gallon in Dixon. The Highest Price was $2.79 at the BP gas station on Lincoln Highway in DeKalb at $2.79/gallon. The average price per gallon in Rockford is $2.56 per gallon

Here are the lowest gas prices for regular unleaded gas in Rockford and in the Stateline Area as of 8/3/15 (*Prices subject to change)

Some cars require premium fuel as do most motorcycles, and gas station owners know that and that is where they will stick it to you. There used to be a time that the difference in price between regular grade fuel and premium fuel was 20 cents. It seems the trend over the past couple years is that stations are now charging a "premium" on premium! Prices between regular grade vary by as much as 80 cents a gallon. I discovered this at a Shell station in Dixon on Sunday. It's up to the individual gas station how much they charge for Premium.
