AAA: Gas Prices Fairly Steady For Holiday Travel

Making any drives for the holidays this week won’t cost an arm and a leg at the gas pump. The latest survey of stations around the state by Triple-A Michigan finds the statewide average price up just a penny from a week ago to $2.49. The auto club puts the average in the Benton Harbor and St. Joseph area at $2.44, which is 2¢ a gallon higher than last week. The most expensive gas in Michigan is in Ann Arbor, where the average is $2.55, and the lowest average is $2.36 in Traverse City of the regions surveyed by AAA. South Haven is not included in that weekly survey, and GasBuddy says prices along the shore in Van Buren County are as low as $2.29.
