DEARBORN (WWJ/AP) – It’s a good time to fill up the tank. AAA Michigan says gasoline prices have fallen roughly 8 cents during the past week to a statewide average of about $3.97 per gallon.
The auto club said Monday the average is about 9 cents per gallon more than last year at this time.
Of the Michigan cities it surveys, AAA Michigan said the cheapest price for self-serve unleaded fuel is in the Saginaw and Bay City areas, where it’s about $3.82 a gallon. The highest average is in the Marquette area at about $4.09.
In Metro Detroit, it looks like the east side is your best bet for a deal. GasBuddy.com, showed prices at $3.71 a gallon in Shelby Township, Clinton Township, Utica and Fraser. The highest prices found in Metro Detroit were in Franklin and Canton at $4.39.
