AAA Michigan: Statewide Gas Prices Drop 13 Cents
According to AAA Michigan, the statewide average daily gas price has dropped 13 cents from last week. Michigan's current statewide average is about $1.53 per gallon.
Of the ten Michigan metro areas surveyed by AAA, the lowest average prices can be found in the Flint area where it's about $1.44 per gallon. The highest average prices can be found in the Marquette area where it's about $1.65 per gallon.
AAA says seasonal reductions in gasoline demand and the relatively lower price for crude oil are likely to help keep prices low in the near term and the imbalance between supply and demand, along with the resolution of distribution and refinery issues is also contributing the falling prices at the pump.
