For a short time this week, Michigan had some of the lowest gas prices in the country.

Gas prices in the Grand Rapids and surrounding areas averaged $1.76/gallon as of Sunday, November 29, with prices in the Kalamazoo area as low as $1.68/gallon. The price in Grand Rapids at this time last year was $2.86/gallon.

The price was still $1.76 in Cedar Springs on Wednesday morning, but had risen to $1.89 by Wednesday afternoon.

“Gasoline prices over the weekend and holiday were certainly quite cheap compared to prior years and other holidays this year,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst. “While some cities and states may see some slight bumps at the pump in the days ahead thanks to the fallout of the downing of a Russian fighter jet last week, we’re more focused on the upcoming OPEC meeting this coming weekend and the potential implications from any major change in oil production. There are expectations that OPEC will continue to kick the can down the road and not change production levels. If there are surprises either way, it could definitely be felt at the pump and into 2016,” he added.
