Highest Gas Prices in Seven Years as Summer Travel Season Begins

May 26, 2021
Press Release

As Americans begin the summer travel season this weekend, they are seeing the highest prices for gas in seven years. In Michigan, the average price for a gallon of gas is nearly three dollars.

"With Democrats in Washington spending trillions of dollars, inflation is a growing problem and prices are rising. This weekend, inflation will force Michigan residents to pay more for gas and groceries when they visit with family and friends," said Congressman John Moolenaar. "These are the highest gas prices in seven years, and the Democrats' policies harm American energy production while raising the cost of living on working families more than anyone else. I will continue to advocate for American energy independence and oppose harmful federal spending that distorts the economy and raises prices on Michigan families."
