Gas averaging over $4 in Michigan

Posted: Updated:
BLISSFIELD, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Gas prices are on the rise in Michigan, even topping $4 in some places.

In Blissfield, gas has reached $4.15 per gallon – even higher than the cost of diesel. Unfortunately, that is the average for the area. Drivers are fed up, and starting to limit how often they hit the road.

"Gas prices are terrible," said Ted Paus, who lives in Blissfield, but drives to visit his mother in a Detroit nursing home at least once a week.

"I was listening to the radio this morning, and they said Michigan was the second highest state out of all the states," Paus said. "Hawaii's the only one higher than us."

Others said this is only the tip of the iceberg, and expect prices to continue to rise throughout the summer.
