This is your typical cash grab for every Summer, but prices are getting a bit too high! Studies show that gas prices are as high as they were in 2014! You would think we would get better over time, I guess not.

Here are gas prices right now:

  • Most expensive gas price averages: Metro Detroit ($3.19), Flint ($3.18), Ann Arbor ($3.18)
  • Least expensive gas price averages: Benton Harbor ($3.12), Traverse City ($3.13), Marquette ($3.14)
