Where’s the cheapest gas in the US? It’s Michigan

MICHIGAN — Of all 50 states, Michigan now has the cheapest gas prices in the entire country, according to data from GasBuddy.com. But it likely won’t last long.

Michigan’s average price for a gallon of gas is $1.802, barely beating out Oklahoma’s $1.804 per gallon.

Nationally, the average is around $2.03 per gallon.

GasBuddy.com analyst Patrick DeHaan said on Twitter it was back on Feb. 26, 2009—more than 2,400 days ago—that gas prices were this low in the state. DeHaan also said it’s likely the lowered prices won’t last more than 24-48 hours.

Why the drop?

DeHaan says it’s likely because of some ‘healthy competition’ as gas stations are continuing to try undercut each other. But he said it won’t stick around.

“I expect an upward adjustment likely tomorrow as most stations have been selling at a loss,” he told FOX 17. “I’d top off tonight, but wouldn’t get too excited when prices rise, because I’m expecting they’ll stay under $2 more often than over it thru the rest of 2015.”

Both Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties are averaging the cheapest gas prices with an average of $1.60 per gallon.

Missouri has the third cheapest gas in the state with an average price for gallon around $1.817.

Motormen Breeze-Out Event Huge Success!

Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday for our 1st Annual Motormen Breeze-out event to benefit the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Motorcycle Unit led by Sgt. Lee Smith! More than 100 motorcycles hit the road with us yesterday morning to raise money for a good cause.

The money raised will go to helping the unit continue its community service and keep the units motorcycles running when they are in need of repair.

We are happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of this great event and to give back to such a great cause! The Sheriff’s Department does a lot for our community. We appreciate everything the Wayne Counties Sheriff Department does and are proud to help them! We are looking forward to a continued partnership for future events!

On behalf of Sheriff Benny Napoleon, Sgt Smith took part in the fundraiser along with other law enforcement including Border Patrol, as well as biker clubs.

The group started here at Dick Scott Motorcycles in Livonia. The ride traveled for 55 miles through several municipalities and ended at Merriman Hollow in Hines Park in Westland. Those who took part in the event were amazed at all of the support from drivers riding by.

Inkster Road resurfacing to begin in September

A project to resurface a stretch of Inkster Road between Plymouth Road and Schoolcraft/I-96 is scheduled to begin in mid-September.

The construction, which is on the border of Redford and Livonia, is expected to be mostly completed by mid-November, according to Tiffani Jackson, public affairs officer for the Wayne County Department of Public Services.

The work will involve milling the existing surface, making repairs to the base and curbs and applying layers of hot mix asphalt, she said.

One lane of traffic in each direction will remain open during construction, she said.

MDOT will advertise this project and open bids in Lansing on Aug. 7, according to Jackson.

The low bid contractor will be determined at that time. “During the bidding time, it is improper for us to discuss project costs,” she said.

Cost sharing

There will be a cost sharing Intergovernmental Agreement with the city of Livonia, she said.

The work was originally scheduled to take place last year, but the Michigan Department of Transportation requested the county push it back one year because of the reconstruction of the I-96 freeway.

Meanwhile, projects have begun in Redford to resurface several local streets as part of a Wayne County program to return road money to townships.

Several projects are under way or completed, according to Redford Township Department of Public Services Director John Selmi:

•Hemingway from Plymouth Road to West Chicago was completed this week.

•Puritan from Fox to Inkster was also completed this week

•Lennane Street north of Six Mile will start on Monday.

Resurfacing work is also expected to begin on Lyndon, from Sarasota to Lenore, once a concrete contract is approved, according to Selmi.

More work

Other projects in Livonia this year include a construction project on Levan Road from Schoolcraft to Five Mile Road.

Work will replace some concrete slabs and provide curb capping. This will allow for the 3 ½-inch asphalt overlay for the entire segment.

Construction is expected to be completed by mid-September

Also this summer, M-14/I-96 from Newburgh Road in Livonia to Sheldon Road in Plymouth is being resurfaced by the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Construction, which will cost about $5.4 million, began in early May and is expected to be completed next month.

Other city of Livonia projects this summer include work on Barkley, Bennett, Bonnydale, Deering, Cardwell, Edgewood, Flamingo, Richland, Melvin, Gardner, Arcola, Glendale, Hees, Milburn, Minton and Westfield. Maintenance work is also planned or underway on Grandon, Hartel, Hathaway, Pembroke and Russell, according to the city of Livonia website.
