A gas war among stations in one Michigan town forced prices below $1.
What caused the drop in prices
According to some reports, the fuel fight in Houghton Lake saw prices hovering around 50 cents — and even dropped as low as 47 cents at one point on Sunday.
The Beacon & Bridge Market, Citgo and Marathon stations were offering the fuel for less than $1, according to 9and10 News.
Police officers were helping direct traffic near the stations because of long lines, according to 9and10 News.
However, the prices were apparently promotional. Gas was back to $1.46, $1.48 and $1.47 at those stations on Monday morning, according to gasbuddy.com.
