AAA: Michigan gas prices edge up 2 cents to $2.80 per gallon
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) – AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide are up 2 cents in the past week to about $2.80 per gallon.
The Dearborn-based auto club says early Monday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is about 27 cents more than at the same point last year.
Overall, AAA notes that prices are lower than a month ago due to demand, winter-blend fuel and falling crude prices. And AAA says they could decline into next week.
Michigan’s highest average was $2.90 per gallon in the Marquette area. The lowest was in the Traverse City area at $2.74 a gallon.
The Detroit-area’s average was about $2.80, down about 2 cents.
AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
