Gas prices

The rollercoaster of gas prices is continuing in Washtenaw County.

Just last week, we were reporting gas prices in Washtenaw County above $4 a gallon. The week before, they were much lower.

This week, says AAA spokesperson Adrienne Woodland, the prices at the pump are down statewide with an average of $3.92 a gallon. And locally, the prices are even lower.

“Washtenaw county is lower than that at $3.86 a gallon for regular unleaded."

And gasbuddy.com is reporting prices as low at $3.09 a gallon in Washtenaw County at a couple stations in Ypsilanti.

Woodland says it appears there was one key reason the prices are dropping this week. That’s because the price of crude oil has dropped to $85 a barrel as world tensions increase.
