The average gas price in the Town of Chesterton is not only significantly higher than the state average, it’s also well above the regional average.

AP was reporting today that the average price of a gallon of unleaded regular gas in Indiana was $4.16 on Wednesday afternoon, according to Gasbuddy.com

The highest average price in Northern Indiana, AP said: $4.25 in Gary and South Bend.

Late this morning in Chesterton, however, the lowest a motorist would pay for a gallon of unleaded was $4.33, at all but three of the town’s gas stations.

The most a motorist would pay: $4.35, at the three Speedway stations.

That $4.35 price is 2.3 percent higher than the average Gary and South Bend price; 4.6 percent higher than the average state price; and fully 20 percent higher than the average national price of $3.64 per gallon.
