Michigan gasoline prices rise after months of decline
Michigan motorists are paying more at the pump today.
Along Flint’s busy Dort Highway, a price war had knocked down the price for a gallon of gas to nearly $1.50. The price war is now over, and motorists may now feel they are losing.
By Monday evening, prices along Dort Highway jumped 50 cents.
While the price jump may have been more pronounced in Flint, every motorist in Michigan is wincing today at pump prices they would have jumped for joy at a month ago.
GasBuddy.com says Michigan’s average price should increase by roughly 20 cents, rebounding from levels not seen since 2009.
An analyst says Michigan’s gas prices had fallen to an “unsustainable” level.
Michigan’s gas prices have been declining for two months.
AAA-Michigan reported Monday that the per-gallon price of gasoline dropped $1.41 in less than a year.
