Chicago was recently named as having the highest gas prices in the nation, at $4.27 per gallon.

According to a recent survey gas prices have hit a new high. And nowhere higher than in Chicago, where the average is at $4.27 per gallon on average. To see how it's affecting local residents, Eight Forty-Eight took to the streets and asked people filling up at a downtown gas station.
