I don't think it will come as a shock to anyone that gas prices are on the rise. Not only on the rise but the highest they've been since October of 2019.

According to MLive, gas prices in Michigan are up 17 cents compared to a week ago and Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $2.64 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is the highest price seen since October of 2019.

The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline is also up and has increased by 11 cents to $2.63 since last week. This is a direct result of the recent winter storm that hit the Golf Coast.

Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA - The Auto Club Group:

The recent unprecedented winter weather has crippled Gulf Coast refineries, sending gas prices soaring nationwide. Warmer weather in the Gulf Coast will assist with getting refinery operations up and running again, but until then the impact may result in pump price increases over the next few days.

According to AAA, the most expensive gas price averages are in Marquette ($2.65), Jackson ($2.65), while the least expensive gas price averages are in Traverse City ($2.58) and Flint ($2.62).

I'm someone that never really pays too much attention to gas prices. It doesn't matter to me because I know I need gas in my tank regardless of the price. I just can't get to where I'm going without it so I don't really pay attention. However, I do notice when I'm filling up my tank and the price on the pump keeps going up and up and then I'm like what hell, how much is gas right now?
