Gas drops below $3.00 a gallon

Gas drops below $3.00 a gallon

It’s something we haven’t seen for a long time.  Gasoline has finally dropped below $3.00 per gallon in West Michigan.  WZZM 13 spotted the first pump on Sunday at Costco on 28th Street SE in Cascade where unleaded gas was selling for $2.99.  Today, unleaded gas was selling for $2.98 a gallon at the Speedway station on Alpine Avenue South and 3 Mile Road NW in Walker.  GasBuddy.com shows gas prices as low as $2.83 at two Admiral stations in Lowell.

Gasoline prices have been dropping because U.S. oil and natural gas production are at a 28-year high due in part to the nation’s boom in shale oil.  Industry observers also attribute the decline to Americans burning less gas because of more fuel efficient vehicles and younger people are driving less.

One Driver's take on saving Gas & Money

One Driver's take on saving Gas & Money

Today I received a call at work from Rick Hill who lives in Grand Rapids, MI. Rick told me about a way that he is now saving gas and money.

Rick drives a 2007 Chevy Equinox and puts on approximately 50,000 miles a year as a salesman. Like most people, he pushed the speed limit whenever he could but just recently decided he was going to bring his speed down to 65 when driving on the highways.  In doing this, Rick said the mileage on his vehicle has improved 7 miles per gallon, thus saving him money also.

Rick did not want to be interviewed but thought this information would be beneficial to other people who have a heavy foot when driving.
