Refinery Problems Driving High Gas Prices In Michigan

(Detroit, MI) -- Michigan drivers who dealt with a near record-setting winter are now being hit with gas prices above the national average to start spring. The cost of one gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the state is about three-dollars-and-72-cents, which is 20-cents above the national price and ten-cents higher than last year. Nancy Cain with Triple-A Michigan says refinery problems in the Midwest are part of the explanation. The automobile services organization added in its state-by-state list of the gas prices that the cost is expected to increase into next month as refineries change to a summer blend of fuel.
