Here's a reason to head toward the pump today after work, we have the cheapest gas prices in the country.

WOOD-TV 8 reports the Michigan average for a gallon of gas is $1.80, and some stations in West Michigan are down to $1.51. The national average is around $2, this is the lowest Michigan has averaged since 2009.

Again, get gas while it's down.

GasBuddy predicts prices will rise before too long.
