    City drivers pay the highest gas prices in the nation. 

    That's according to the nationwide Lundberg Survey, which reported that Chicagoans pay an average of $4.02 for a gallon of regular gasoline.

    The national average price rose to $3.67 a gallon on Sept. 9, up 5.76 cents from two weeks ago, according to the survey of about 2,500 gasoline stations in the United States.

    In Chicago gas prices fell slightly, a week after soaring above $4. According to AAA, the price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.97 on Monday, down from $4.02 the week before.

    The price, however, remains more than a dollar higher than the $2.95 average price per gallon the auto club reported at this time last year.
