>>Illinois Gas Prices Continue To Drop
(Undated, IL) -- Something Illinois residents haven't seen in years is popping up all over the state. The "State Journal-Register" says this week some Springfield stations have been under three dollars per gallon. That hasn't happened since 2010. "Gas-Buddy-Dot-Com" says the lowest Illinois gas prices are in Danville, where a gallon will cost you two-dollars-94-cents. The state average is three-dollars-35-cents a gallon because of Chicago's relatively high cost of three-dollars-37-cents.
>>Illinois State Drops Motorcycle Safety Training Course
(Normal, IL) -- Illinois State University will no longer offer a motorcycle safety class. The University has offered the course for 37 years and certified more than 80-thousand riders. The program's director Raymond Mucha said the Illinois Department of Transportation is likely going to partner with the University of Illinois in Urbana starting this spring. ISU officials tell the "Bloomington Pantagraph" that the program no longer makes economic sense.
