Gas prices dip below $2 mark in Kent County

ALPINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Some Kent County drivers who braved  the slick roads Monday got a nice surprise at the pump in Alpine  Township.

At the Citgo station on Alpine Avenue near 7 Mile Road,  price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline dropped to $1.99.  Several other stations along M-37 appeared to follow suit, based on Gas  Buddy’s online price map.

There  were no lines to fill up at the Citgo Monday morning, which is a good  thing according to petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan. He says prices  should keep shrinking over the next few days.

Nationwide, the average price for a gallon or regular unleaded gas is $2.53. That’s about $0.30 less than a month ago.

DeHaan  says drivers across the U.S. will spend $117 million less on gasoline  now compared to a month ago, just in time for the holidays.
