MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- West Michigan has some of the lowest gas prices, not only in the state but nationally. As of Tuesday, it cost about a $1.77 a gallon on average. That's about three cents less than on Monday. When you consider the averages over the last couple of years, drivers are saving more than a dollar a gallon compared to last year. Compared to 2013, we're saving about $2 a gallon.
WZZM 13's Jon Mills met some drivers in Muskegon County who said it's about time Michigan has the lowest average price in the nation.
At a Muskegon Marathon station where the price dropped to $1.65, drivers said they're excited about the extra savings it means at this time of the year. Elsewhere around the city, some stations were selling regular for $1.61 a gallon.
"You can go gas up now for, like, a $20 bill," said Chris West of Muskegon. "It is great; it gives you some extra money for the holiday."
