gas at 47 cents sign-posted by Bethany Bartlett on gasbuddy FB

Would you believe gas prices dropped down to 47 cents per gallon last night in Michigan? has the photo to prove it.

Filling stations in the rural Michigan town of Houghton Lake competed for customers and began slashing prices in a gas war Sunday.

Who Will Go The Lowest?

WILX news reports that after Marathon and Citgo slashed their prices for regular gas to 95 cents a gallon, the Beacon and Bridge Market dropped theirs to 78 cents.

Then, that same station went even lower, cutting the cost to a very nostalgic 47 cents, as shown in this photo taken by Bethany Bartlett and submitted to

Currently all three stations are hovering back up around $1.47.
