Gas prices in Michigan up 13 cents from a week ago

AAA Michigan

Gas prices are on the rise again. Up 13 cents in Michigan from a week ago. At least a few Metro areas are seeing prices above $4 a gallon

AAA reports Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $3.94 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 7 cents more than this time last month and 70 cents more than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $59 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; an increase of about $8 from 2021's highest price last November.

After declining for 98 consecutive days, the national average reversed course last week as fluctuating oil prices and tight supply due to planned and unplanned maintenance work at refineries on the West Coast and Midwest contribute to rising pump prices.

Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group says quote,

"Michigan motorists are paying more at the pump this week, with some metro areas seeing prices above $4 a gallon,".

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