DEARBORN (WWJ/AP) – AAA Michigan says gasoline prices are down about 16 cents per gallon during the past week to a statewide average of $3.40.

You’ll find the second best price, $3.17, in Sterling Heights at Zazz on 15 Mile near Mound Rd. Several service stations in Livonia were selling $3.18 Monday morning. (More details here).
