GRAND RAPIDS, Mich- Gas prices are going up again, this time to $4.15 per gallon for regular unleaded. Drivers were paying around $3.85 this past week in West Michigan.

According to this recent spike is attributed to an unexpected “glitch” at a refinery, which lead to lower production of gasoline.

That “glitch” caused that refinery to buy gas from another refinery, to make up for its contractual obligations. Which then leads to higher prices at the pump.
