Cindy Hitsman, a clerk at the Admiral next to Orchard Market, said the reason the Admirals are so busy is that they were told to change their prices at 6 p.m. to the $3.65 per gallon other stations are already charging.

At 3:30 p.m., customers were waiting about 20 minutes in line to top off their tanks. Three or four cars per lane were in queue for the pumps.

When asked why she waited in line to get gas, Bonnie Norwood of Spring Lake Township said she is going to Chicago next week and didn't want to chance not getting the same lower price as what's available now.

Gas prices nationwide averaged $3.51 per gallon, according to



i fueled up at marathon on robbins rd at $3.25 at noon , petro runs like michigan weather, wait 5 min and it will change, lol


Riding a bike around town saves all the hassle.

I ride my bike anywhere I need to go within a 20 mile radius, only using the car for further trips. I only need to fill up the car twice a month at most. Saves a TON of money, while getting an excellent workout. Best part? During rush hours, I can actually beat cars to destinations on the bike.

In fact, I am about to head out on the bike now to grab some dinner.


So I'm to understand if I hurry I could have some Big Gas Savings?


This is such a joke... .42 cent increase right out of the shoot... and give it 7-10 days and it will drop back down... or down even .02 cents by tomorrow.

It's called the Speedway Effect.


Longing for the old days of 'gas price wars' when local stations all had to have the lowest prices...


Whats the Excuse this time? was 3.29 earlier and all week long it was dropping now the 42 cent spike. Seriously! Whats the Excuse?

Say no to new taxes

Simple answer, because they can. The government has allowed oil companies to merge till there's only a few left, this is the result. The same thing is about to happen with cell phone companies and internet providers.
