Handlebar, 2311 W. North Ave., is giving us a small reason to root for higher gas prices: the "Inverse Petrol-O-Matic Beer Pricing Scheme." If regular unleaded costs more than $3 a gallon at the BP station down the street from restaurant, pints of Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale will be discounted to $3 (from $3.75). The cost goes down a dollar every time gas rises another dollar -- so let's hear it for $6 gas!
