AAA reports gas prices held steady through the Labor Day holiday. In fact, gas prices in Michigan are the exact same price as a week ago.

Michigan drivers are paying an average of $3.83 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 25 cents less than this time last month but still 62 cents more than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $57 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; an increase of about $6 from when prices were their highest last November.

According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased slightly. Although gasoline demand has increased and supply has tightened, lower oil prices have led to falling pump prices.

Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group says quote, “Michigan motorists saw an uptick in gas prices heading into Labor Day weekend," she adds, "Despite the slight increase, the Michigan state average held steady week over week."

The most expensive gas price averages can be found in Ann Arbor, Metro Detroit and Traverse City. With the least expensive averages found in Grand Rapids, Saginaw and Lansing.
