AAA: Michigan Gas Prices Drop 7 Cents

The Michigan state average is down 7 cents compared to last week

DEARBORN, Mich., (January 6, 2020) - Gas prices in Michigan are down 7 cents compared to last week. Michigan drivers are now paying an average price of $2.53 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 8 cents less than this time last month and about 44 cents more than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $38 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; a discount of $6 from when prices were their highest last July.

"Many motorists across the nation saw gas prices increase last week as a record number of travelers hit the road for the year-end holidays," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "Michigan drivers are now seeing a decrease in prices following the holidays."

Compared to last week, Metro Detroit's average daily gas price decreased slightly. Metro Detroit's current average is $2.57 per gallon, 3 cents less than last week's average and 53 cents more than this time last year.
