SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

If you haven’t done it yet, experts say you might want to fill your tank today.

Gasbuddy Senior Petroleum Expert Patrick DeHaan tweeted some stations in the Great Lakes may see prices climb after a rise in wholesale costs.

He goes as far to say that if he was in Michigan, he would go ahead and fill up.

DeHaan also says this expected increase doesn’t have anything to do with the holiday. Instead, stations had been selling under cost.

The saving grace? DeHaan does anticipate prices staying around the $2 a gallon mark for a while.

As of 1 p.m., prices in Mid-Michigan were around the $1.73 mark in Saginaw. A gallon of regular unleaded was going for around $1.64 in Flint.
