COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - If you haven’t already filled up for that trip over the river and thru the woods to grandma’s house, you will be paying more for the trip now. Gas prices jumped up between 15 and 30 cents a gallon midday yesterday at quite a few stations
Branch County and generally throughout the great lakes states according to Gas Buddy-dot-com. AAA's Heather Hunter says 90% of all holiday travelers, and today is the busiest travel day of the year, will be going by car. About 7% are going by plane and the rest by Bus or train. So, today the busiest travel day of the year.
Tonight is considered the biggest bar night of the year and the combination can be deadly. That’s why nearly 100 police agencies in 20-counties across West Michigan will be beefing up patrols on travel routes that are known to be frequented by drunk drivers. Last year, seven died in traffic wrecks in Michigan during the 4-day holiday weekend.
