Gas in Michigan is only 78 cents a gallon! Whoa!!!
January 18, 2016 4:41pm CST
Throughout 10 years of driving, I don't ever recall seeing gas less than $2, let alone less than $1! In Michigan, it's 78 cents a gallon! There is actually a record low of 47 cents at a station in Houghton. With gas being this low, many were getting gas to the point police had to help direct traffic! How much are gas prices averagely around you? I live in Southern California, regular gas price is around $3 bucks a gallon! The max a few summers ago, was at $5! I hope to see gas prices decrease soon! (Image Credits) foxnews.com/us/2016/01/18/gas-prices-fall-below-1-in-michigan

@infatuatedbby Michigan is surrounded by massive lakes, why go to North central Michigan to see a smaller lake? But you're right, there are good reasons to visit. I used to live in Western Michigan. If you're an outdoors-person, there is quite a lot to do there - even in the winter. I think the area surrounding these low gas prices might appeal to hunters.

I would imagine this has something to do with Flint Michigan, where those poor people have no water to drink. I am glad to see a state wide response. I took my water donation to the fire department this morning. I guess the whole cities water system is contaminated with LEAD! Those poor people, the vets, the children, the elderly and the men and woman of America with no water!! Everyone on my road went to the store this weekend and we all bought water to take to the fire department. The whole area, my city and four or five others will be sending the donations at the end of each week until the crisis is over. We can just drop them off at any fire station for the red cross, or fema or whoever will come get it. I was so proud to see so many people getting water. Anyway, with no water, those people need the cheepest gas they can get!!!

I read that on the news just recently! The water is contaminated with LEAD and everyone is force to buy water bottles and it is crazy. That is very nice of you to donate water. And yes, there is a story behind the gas then! The news failed to point that out.

It's good that the gas is much cheaper now. I think the price of the gas really affects us a lot. I just checked, the gas price here is about $0.42 USD. I think it sounds cheaper as compared to yours, but it's quite expensive for us as we are oil-producing country.
