Arbitrum Gas fee suggested by MetaMask requires modification

Arbitrum Gas fee suggested by MetaMask is a lot far from the Gas fee actually charged by the network. For example, the attached image shows a current transaction of mine in which the Gas fee suggested by MetaMask is above 2.1 dollars. However, the gas fee charged was around 10 cents. It is usually a few cents these days on Arbitrum. I think that the Priority fee should be set to zero in MetaMask, as Arbitrum does not charge the priority fee.

Hi @Maryam1 ,

Thanks for sharing this! Will pass along.

Great! I have seen many MetaMask users got confused these days by the estimated Gas fee on Arbitrum after the Nitro upgrade.
