Gas prices are rising across Metro Detroit -- and around the world -- as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, wreaking havoc on one of the world’s biggest sources of energy.

The Help Me Hank team is working to find the cheapest gas prices around town. They are fluctuating daily and vary from city to city. But in general, prices are up about 10-20 cents from last week.
