In metro Detroit, it has been between 2.49 and 2.75 per gallon over the past 6 months or so. When I filled up Thursday, it was around 2.69. It's usually cheaper in Macomb and Wayne counties than in Oakland County, and it's cheaper in metro Detroit and Grand Rapids than it is up north. The refinieries are either in Detroit or in Hammond/Gary, IN, so the closer you are to one, the cheaper the gas.
Here, gas goes up a few cents on Thursday and Friday, and usually the price goes back down on Sunday. It becomes a bigger swing in the summer. The price will sometimes jump 20 cents a gallon from Wednesday to Friday, in order to gouge people leaving town for the weekend.
