Michigan gas prices ticked down about 14 cents from last week, dropping below the $5 per gallon mark.

AAA reports Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $4.81 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 41 cents less than this time last month but still $1.63 more than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $72 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; an increase of about $21 from when prices were their highest last November.

“Michigan motorists continue to see falling gas prices across the state,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “While demand increased prior to the 4th of July, falling oil prices have helped contribute to lower pump prices.”
