COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Motorists in Branch County and across West Michigan are finding the lowest gasoline prices around here in more than 3 years. There are some stations in the Grand Rapids area that have fallen below $3 for the first time since October of 2010 with the lowest in Lowell at $2.88 a gallon.
In the Coldwater area, many stations are selling self serve regular for $3.15 a gallon. Greg Laskowski at GasBuddy.com says it’s a trend that may take hold. There is less demand and 94% of Michigan’s refineries are functioning well. They will probably continue to drop right up until it’s time to hit the road for Christmas.
