It's no secret gas prices are nauseating and the average in Iowa and Illinois is currently not good. But there are some ways we can save money on gas right now.

With Spring Break coming up and summer vacations planned and booked, we're getting ready to travel a lot. As of today, the gas average for a gallon of regular in the Davenport-Moline-Rock Island area is $3.98, which is up from $3.89 just yesterday. Math on my next trip shows flying would cost just as much as driving it.

Meanwhile, the national average gas price is $4.31, according to the AAA. For perspective, a month ago the national average was $3.47 for a gallon of regular gas. Best wishes to anyone driving diesel vehicles, by the way, since that price has reached 5 bucks a gallon in some places.

Obviously, with the Russian invasion of Ukraine continuing, it doesn't look like gas prices will be going down any time soon.
