The average price of a gallon of gasoline in Michigan is a staggering 5,214, an all-time high and $ 2,198 higher than a year ago.
The sharp rise in prices has affected everyone, including the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office, which has stated that “we have exhausted the budget for fuel that was budgeted a few months before the budget was reset.”
In a Facebook post, which is effectively archived by Fox 2 Detroit, Isabella County Sheriff Michael Maine said he instructed deputies “to try to handle calls that are acceptable on the phone” so they don’t have to go out to respond to calls. Personally. “Deputies will continue to patrol all areas of the county, they will respond to calls that need to be handled personally,” he explained.

He added that despite budget-saving measures, “any call going on with active suspects would involve a response from deputies.” Maine added that “security is our primary goal and we will continue to respond to such calls,” which requires a physical response.
Despite the assurances, Isabella County Sheriff’s Office appears to have been flooded with negative comments because their Facebook page has been apparently deleted or set private. This is a dubious move for a public entity and it is understandable why citizens would be concerned.
However, the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office appears to be using Dodge Charger purses, and when equipped with an entry-level 3.6-liter V6 engine, they combine 18 mpg CT, 26 mpg highway, and 21 mpg. However, Dodge also offers all-wheel drive and V8 variants, which are thirsty.
