How Gas Prices Changed in Michigan City Last Week |
Thursday, March 24 marked one month since Russia invaded and waged war on Ukraine, creating unprecedented volatility in the global oil market. National average gas prices per gallon have fallen 9 cents since hitting a record high of $4.33 two weeks ago.
Despite the cooling, gasoline prices remain well above the $4 threshold, and some politicians are looking for ways to offset this financial burden for Americans.
House Democrats Mike Thompson, John Larson and Lauren Underwood introduced the Gas Rebate Act of 2022 last week that would give individuals earning $75,000 or less a check for $100 each month that gas prices rise above $4 the gallon.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed sending payments of $400 per vehicle, capped at two, directly to state residents. It remains to be seen whether either proposal will pass.
Stacker has compiled gas price statistics for the Michigan City-La Porte, IN metro area using data from AAA. Gasoline prices are as of March 24. State gasoline tax data is from World Population Review.
