Speedway cranks up the price

Speedway stations, like this one on Pickard Road in Mt. Pleasant, raised the price of gas to $3.499 Tuesday. Other retailers, such as the Meijer station across the street, did not immediately follow suit.

The price of gasoline at Speedway stations in outstate Michigan, including Mt. Pleasant, jumped 23 cents a gallon Tuesday morning to a record $3.499 a gallon.
Gasoline had been selling for about $3.26 a gallon
Other stations in Mt. Pleasant appeared to be resisting the increase, at least for the moment.
Drivers were frantically packing service stations to top off their tanks at $3.26 -- which in itself had been a record high price.
