Gas Prices at Record Highs Along Lakeshore

by

HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - This morning’s weekly survey of Holland area gas stations proved what most motorists already knew; it hasn’t ever cost as much to fuel up as it does right now. The average of $4.28 per gallon not only is 33 cents higher than last Friday, 45 cents more than the beginning of Tulip Time, but breaks the poll’s record of $4.21 set on May 6, 2011. Triple-A’s daily canvassing had the statewide average of $4.25; nationally, it’s just $3.63. Michigan's mark is the highest in the Continental US, topped only overall by Hawaii's $4.31. Oil industry analysts claim that a supply "squeeze" is to blame for this spike, and while they say that prices will gradually ease by next week, most motorists are understandably dubious of that prediction.
