Statewide average gas price jumps 7 cents

Current average 60 cents below last year's average


DETROIT – The statewide average weekly gas price went up about 7 cents from last week, according to AAA Michigan.

While the 7-cent increase puts Michigan's average at $1.91 per gallon, that's still about 60 cents cheaper than the average price this time last year.

Out of the 10 Michigan metro areas surveyed, AAA said the lowest self-serve unleaded fuel price was found in Detroit at about $1.86 per gallon.

All 10 of the metro areas, however, still remain below $2 and below the national average.
