Gas Prices Up Slightly

We are paying a little more on average to fuel up today than we were a week ago. Triple-A Michigan’s survey of gas stations statewide puts the average price at $1.91, up 8¢ from last week, but 16¢ less than this time last year. The lowest prices are in Flint with an average of $1.85, and Marquette drivers are paying the most for the fourth straight week at $1.94. In Benton Harbor and St. Joseph, the auto club says our average is $1.89, up 4¢ from last week. According to GasBuddy, the South Haven average is $1.84. This is the fifth week in a row Michigan’s average price is under $2 in all ten major metro areas surveyed by Triple-A.
