It's the moment I've been waiting for as a driver in Michigan for the last decade. For the first time in I don't know how long, gas has officially dipped below $2 dollars a gallon in some areas of Michigan. The GasBuddy app shows that a Citgo AGO at Alpine Avenue & 7 Mile Road  and a Mobil station on Alpine in Comstock Park are now at $1.99/gallon. The Speedway on Leonard Street at US-131 is listed at $2.00/gallon.

Right now the average gas price in Michigan is $2.37, but this is cause for celebration for us in SW Michigan. GasBuddy currently shows the Circle K in Battle Creek is at $2.09, Marathon in Mattawan is at $2.07 and the Shell on Gull Rd in Kalamazoo with a free Shell card is $2.12. Some pretty sweet gas prices right now considering the time of the year. Let's hope this is a sign of things to come.
