AAA: Michigan Gas Prices Increase

The Michigan state average is up 6 cents compared to last week

DEARBORN, Mich., (date) - Gas prices in Michigan are rising. The average price for gasoline increased 6 cents last week.

Michigan drivers are now paying an average price of $2.19 per gallon for regular unleaded. Monday's state average is 6 cents more than a week ago, holding steady compared to this time last month, and 48 cents less than this time last year.

It now costs about $33 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $7 less than what drivers paid last August, when pump prices hit $2.67 per gallon.

"Right now the average prices at the pump in Michigan are just about on par with the national average," said Howard Hughey, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. "Despite experiencing an increase from last week, we are still considerably down compared to this time last year and do not anticipate this becoming a long term trend."
