Gas prices in Michigan have hit a record high of over $5 a gallon in some areas. Gas stations at Meijer and marathon are currently at $5.19 per gallon in Alpena.
A tip for drivers to save money while shopping for gas is to check for the proper maintenance on their vehicles. Having fully inflated tires and reducing the weight of your vehicle will help increase fuel efficiency or joining a gas loyalty program.
AAA Spokesperson for Michigan Howard Hughey said, “What we do know is that these high prices are result of a lot of global factors including some domestic ones which equate to a tight supply in the Midwest and high demand for use of gas in the state of Michigan.”
