Manistique Fuel prices compared to Escanaba

I just got back from Escanaba this afternoon (July 25, 2011).  I paid $3.78 for Premium fuel in Escanaba.  In Manistique the price for Premium is $4.09.  I saved 31¢ per gallon.  If you can travel an extra 50 miles or so when your going through Manistique and looking to buy fuel, don't stop in Manistique. Head to Rapid River or Escanaba.
