AAA Michigan: Statewide Gas Prices Increase 11 Cents
AAA Michigan reports that the statewide average daily gas price has increased 11 cents from last week. Michigan's current statewide average is about $2.07 per gallon.
Of the ten Michigan metro areas surveyed by AAA for self-serve unleaded fuel prices, the lowest average can be found in the Detroit area, where it's about $2.02 per gallon. The highest average price can be found in the Marquette area where it's about $2.14 a gallon. Gas prices in and around the Flint area were just slightly higher than the state average with prices around $2.08 per gallon as of Sunday.
AAA says many refineries are conducting seasonal maintenance, which has led to a decline in fuel production and refineries often "sell-off" or "draw-down" on their existing supply of gasoline in order to make room for the seasonal blend. This reduction in supply often leads to higher prices at the pump.
