Gas Prices Climb At The Pump

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - You'll notice prices at the pump aren't providing any relief to wallets.

The average price of a gallon of gas is up about a nickel statewide as the holiday weekend nears.

According to the AAA survey of gas stations the average price is $3.75 per gallon.

That's down 11 cents per gallon from this same time last year.

Meanwhile, changes could be coming to the state's gas tax that could raise gas prices.

The Michigan Senate is considering measures that will add to the gas tax for the next 5 years.

Right now it's at 19 cents a gallon but the legislation will gradually raise it to 32 cents.

The added money will help pay for road and bridge repair.
 
In total the tax increase would add $450 Million towards roads.
