The highest prices are in the Traverse City area at about $3.09 per gallon. Motorists in the Detroit area are paying an average of $2.97.
Gas prices typically drop in the fall as fewer people take vacations. Also, refineries switch to a less expensive winter gasoline blend.

    If the state want to improve everything, they should increase the tax on fuel. They would reduce smog & fuel consumption, increase carpooling and public transit usage, increase tax revenue, decrease the need for road improvements and encourage the big 3 to build more economical vehicles.

    gas prices are't helping anyone,are they.some gov people get cuts on what they pay,whiole Iraq pays 5 cents a gallon.brits pay 6.25 a gal,and many here and there.yet while there alot of oil under ground right here in the US,we aren't touching it.oh,no.they build thoes oil refineries right on the cost lines, knowing they probably will be hit by hurricans,and damaged.costing people more.good excuse to raise the costs ect.slowly moving them in land out of mother nature way,makes more sense in the long run,as well as open up a few more jobs,for truckers and construction workers.higher gas prices,then alittle lower gas are we suppose to BUDGET our incomes.we know the gov can't even budget.and don't tell us anything,all they keep from us.prices on every thing just goes up and away.gas TAX,wheres that going?ya.who's getting rich off that one.will the prices ever go back down where its right for all.are they seeing how far they can push people?if we pay it,they'll take it.
