Naperville's a pretty large city. There are lots of gas stations here. Do you really think every single one of them is accounted for by every on-line price checker?
I would also add that the two stations (along with a third about a mile down the street) are generally the cheapest ones in the area. It is possible that they were well below the Naperville average to begin with, and then had to match the increases with the more expensive stations when they started experiencing supply problems.
Either that, or I'm just making it all up because I'm bored.
I just think your timeline is off.
You have to go back just over a month ago when IL averaged ~3.45/gal.
I find it hard to believe a gas station would sell gas at .20 cents less than anyone else. That's quite a gap.
