With the recent weather activity closing Texas refineries, local fuelling stations are already raising gas prices an inconvenient and exorbitant amount. Without mentioning them, you can imagine who has raised the price from $2.339 to $2.659!

And with the Labor Day weekend approaching, another possible inconvenience should be noted for those who are going "north of da bridge!" Monday's annual Bridge Walk will have the entire Mackinac Bridge closed for motorized traffic from 6:30 AM - Noon. No security threats have been noted, but safety measures as always, are being taken as a precautionary measure. So any thoughts to get out of the UP early best be done REALLLLY EARLY!
