Bike Chain Rubbing Frame! Bent Frame Maybe?

I have a moderately used bike (used 3 times a week, not anything hardcore) and I have noticed that since packing it for a trip around the country the chain has been rubbing against the frame close to the sprocket doo-hickey at the back of the bike. do I need to bend my frame or is the chain rubbing because of something else being bent.

Any Help Would Be Much Appreciated!

try adding an extra spacer or two to your spindle, like behind the sproket, it will gice you more clearance.

The Sprocket is really tight against the frame. Maybe I can bend it with a vice or sumthin?

Don't bend your frame if thats what your saying.. Is your sproket bent? If not, then just add spacers under it like I said.
