For the first time since the spring of 2009, gas prices in Cedar Springs are nearing the $2.00 mark.

At the end of the day Wednesday, prices had dropped to $2.13, 10 cents lower than the Grand Rapids average, and 25 cents lower than the Michigan average, according gasbuddy.com.

Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at Gasbuddy.com, said that as of midday Sunday, all 48 lower U.S. states saw averages under $3/gallon, with New York being the last of the lower 48 to join. “Motorists are saving $270 million dollars every day versus pump prices a year ago,” he said.

A year ago, gas prices hovered just below $3.00 in our area.
