With the year turning over tomorrow there are a few things that you will see changing in your everyday life.

First that gas prices are going up. This is most cause of the new gas that put in and that went into effect on the New Year. Gas prices have gone up steadily over the last few days and expect a slight jump on Monday or Tuesday. The average price of gas around the state is about $2.60 with the Lansing-Area being around that price. More info about it here. 

Next that minimum wage is going up on 1/1, which will make it rise from $8.50 to $8.90. The 40-cent increase means those working full time will earn $16 more a week, or $832 a year. Michigan is now 15th in the US in minimum wage.
