The average price of gas in Michigan inched up from last Monday's $2.181 to a statewide average of $2.19. Here in southwest Michigan, last week was the first week in about a month that gas prices actually increased. Was it in anticipation of a beautiful weekend and the hope of catching some fall travelers that gas went up? Well, if gas prices continue to bounce up a bit that might shoot down the theory some folks have that the lower gas prices are a ploy by Republicans hoping to fetch more votes with lower gas prices.
