HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - Gas prices are up everywhere, but they aren’t as bad as a year ago.

That may be of little solace to motorists accustomed to fuel costs around the $3.25 mark for much of the winter along the Lakeshore. This morning’s weekly survey of Holland area stations showed a per-gallon average of $3.44. Rates ranged from $3.32 to $3.49.

This is 21 cents higher than last Friday’s mark of $3.23, as for the second straight weekend there was a price spike at the pump. However, it’s costing on average 43 cents less per gallon to fuel up than it did a year ago.

Triple-A’s daily canvassing also showed increases, of 12 cents per gallon to $3.39 nationally, and of 18 cents to $3.46 statewide. Oil industry observers say that the higher rates may be in place for a while due to seasonal blending changeover, scheduled refinery maintenance, and increased demand due to spring break.
