Gas Prices On The Decline

It’s a little easier on the wallet this week than last to fill up. Triple-A Michigan puts our gas prices in Benton Harbor and St. Joseph at an average of $2.31, down 9¢ from last Monday. Statewide, the average is down about 8¢ to $2.34. The state’s lowest prices are in both Traverse City and Flint, where they’re down to $2.24, while Jackson drivers are paying a lot more with a $2.45 average. The auto club says our 8¢ drop is the third-largest weekly change in the nation in the weekly price, and demand is flattening out while production is on the rise. Gasoline stocks in the Great Lakes region are higher than they’ve been at this time in the spring over the past two years. South Haven prices, according to GasBuddy, are between $2.23 and $2.25.
