Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital is holding a Blood Drive Thursday 11am to 4pm.
The summer typically sees fewer blood donations so it becomes more critical for successful blood drives locally. 100 percent of the blood donated will stay in Michigan to help local patients. Michigan Blood is the hospitals blood supply partner they accept appointments or walk-ins during the drive on Thursday September 3rd.
For volunteering or appointments call 866MIBLOOD (866.642.5663) or miblood.org
Gas prices are dropping. This can be credited to the large BP distillation refinery in Indiana that caused summer gas prices to spike this summer. The refinery restarted last week after being shut down in early August for unscheduled repairs.
Currently the average price in Ludington is 2.38 a gallon. Gas prices have seen the largest price drop of the year, dropping by about 32 cents in the past week. The average price per gallon for the state of Mi is down by over a dollar compared to last year. Prices should continue to fall over the next week and that should help many Labor Day drivers close out the summer driving season with a little more change in their pocket.
