DETROIT (WWJ) – The price of gas shot up in metro Detroit Tuesday as high as $4.15 to $4.20 a gallon at some gas stations.

Driver Melanie Koerber spoke with WWJ’s Sandra McNeill as she filled up at a Speedway station in Royal Oak.

“Way too high for me, it’s a bit ridiculous now, and costs about $45 to fill up my car, so I’m not to happy about it,” said Koerber.

Koerber says the price of gas is on her mind everyday.

“Try to car pool and ride with friends, and avoid taking too long on trips and thankfully I don’t have an SUV, it’s a real gas guzzler,” said Koerber.

Carl Skeva says the price jump is really hurting his wallet – he pays hundreds out of his own pocket for work related driving.

“I absolutely hate it, I fill up daily, and that much money – I could do all kinds of stuff with it,” said Skeva.

“A lot, it looks like a lot, they’re going to make a big profit,” said another woman at the pump.

By late afternoon, the price at the station was back down to $4.03.

The manager tells WWJ the changes are normal fluctuations dictated by the company.
