Gas prices rise in Mid-Michigan

Posted: Updated:

(08/28/12) - Just when we were starting to feel a bit of relief, gas prices shoot back up again, and in some places they've cleared that dreaded $4 a gallon hurdle.

We're feeling the pain at the pump here in Mid-Michigan, but it seems to be a national trend - and the weather may be to blame.

We've seen prices right around $4.09 in Flint, but they could climb even higher.

The jump at the pump is about 14 cents more per gallon than this time last year.

AAA says the state average is $3.93, but that's likely on its way up.

A big reason behind the increase - Hurricane Isaac.

Oil refineries are closing because of the storm, and we're very close to the labor day weekend.

The state attorney general just issued a warning - he says prices are likely on the rise, but price gouging is illegal in Michigan.
