MICHIGAN, USA — Gas prices appear to be rising to $3.29 per gallon in Michigan today, Patrick De Haan of Gas Buddy reports. After the record highs on the fourth of July, the state’s gas prices were expected to plateau and decrease, but current prices tell a different story.

Michigan’s previous 2021 high was set in early July. At that time, a gallon cost around $3.21. With the fourth of July weekend approaching and a record-high number of Michigan residents traveling for the holiday, the lofty prices were expected. Now, halfway through July, the prices are hitting unprecedented marks.

Countrywide gas prices first hit the $3 mark in early May, steadily increasing over the past two months.

More price increases may be on their way. GasBuddy predicted that this summer’s gas prices will be the most expensive since 2014, as more people continue to travel following the pandemic.
