As Labor Day weekend approaches, Michigan's Attorney General is warning retailers against any attempts to take advantage of drivers at the gas pump. In a statement released Thursday, Bill Schuette says "we will not tolerate price gouging or price fixing." The Attorney General's Office's Corporate Oversight Division monitors the balance of wholesale and retail prices across the state. It investigates any time there is evidence state law has been broken for gouging or price fixing. GasBuddy.com expects the statewide average for a gallon of unleaded gasoline to be around $3.69 through the weekend, give or take ten-cents.
