Well, it was fun while it lasted. Winter finally arrived here in Michigan (and the rest of the Midwest) which caused energy forecasters to predict increased use of heating oil and natural gas which caused the price of a barrel of oil to spike up. This eventually made it to your local filling station and raised the average price of gas in Michigan to $2.092 (up from $1.95 one week ago). It could always be worse. Just one month ago the Michigan average was $2.263 and one year ago we were paying $2.305 at the pump.
