AAA reports Michigan gas prices hit a new record high.

Gas prices in Michigan soared 28 cents, setting a new record high. Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $4.32 per gallon for regular unleaded.

This price is 35 cents more than this time last month and $1.24 more than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $64 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; an increase of about $13 from when prices were their highest last November.

Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group says quote, "Tight gasoline stocks in the Midwest, coupled with rising demand and high crude oil prices sent Michigan gas prices soaring to a new record high," adding, "Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices remain above $105 per barrel."

The most expensive gas price averages can be found this week in Marquette, Lansing and Saginaw, while the least expensive averages are found in Traverse City, Ann Arbor and Metro Detroit.
