Gas Prices Jump for Holiday Weekend

AAA says more people will be traveling this holiday weekend than the past five years, which means plenty busy pumps.

Around the region, drivers are fueling up for their trips and many are noticing a spike in prices across the state.

Even though the average price is $3.72 a gallon, costs are different from station to station. The Beacon and Bridge in Cadillac was at $3.89 which surprised some down state travelers.

AAA says gas prices this holiday weekend are actually lower than last year’s Memorial weekend which may be why more people are traveling this year.
