AAA Michigan: Statewide Gas Prices Up About Eight Cents
A few days after Christmas and a few days before the new year, AAA Michigan reports that the statewide average weekly gas price has increased about eight cents to an average of $1.91 per gallon.
Of the ten Michigan metro areas surveyed by AAA for self-serve unleaded fuel prices, the lowest averages can be found in the Flint area where it's about $1.85 per gallon. The highest averages can be found in the Marquette area where it's about $1.94 per gallon. Still, gas prices in Michigan remain below the national average.
AAA says prices should stay low due to the global market remaining oversupplied and that the oversupply is also expected to characterize the domestic oil market in the near term.
