COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - If it sounded too good to be true, you’re right, almost. Speaking of gasoline prices in Michigan, a few stations dipped below $3.00 a gallon this morning. However, it didn’t last long, as the cost of filling up spiked elsewhere around the state, between 20 and 40 cents a gallon. In the Coldwater area, quite a few stations had prices falling in recent days, selling for close to $3.26 a gallon. However, in some locations, the tote boards today in Coldwater showed $3.49 a gallon.
Patrick DeHaan at GasBuddy. Com believes this increase will be short lived and by Thanksgiving, more stations will be selling gas for under $3.00 a gallon. He said there’s also the on-going partial federal government shutdown putting pressure on prices to decline.
