Wow! Who would have thought that the average gas price in Michigan would drop $.31 from the end of July to the end of August? Today, the average price of gas in Michigan is down to $2.768. At the end of July we were paying $3.079 on average at the pump here in Michigan. One year ago the average price of gas in Michigan was $2.673. So, after all of the ups (and there seemed like more ups in prices than down) and downs of the last 12 months we are only paying 9.5 cents more than last year.
With that being said I have this feeling in my gut that these prices will NOT last. Labor Day weekend is coming. The last big hurrah before sending the kiddies packing for school.
My advice? Fill 'er up at the beginning of the week and top 'er off by Wednesday. The odds are that prices will go up this weekend.
