METRO DETROIT (WXYZ) — The average Michigan gas price is down 6 cents from last week, according to AAA. The average price for regular unleaded in Michigan is now $3 per gallon — 15 cents more than a month ago and 40 cents less than a year ago. The average cost to fill up a 15-gallon gasoline truck is $45 — a $13 decrease from August 2023 when prices were the highest.

"Michigan motorists are seeing slightly higher gas prices compared to last week," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "If oil prices continue to face upward pressure, drivers may see pump prices continue to rise."
