Finally! Some Relief At The Pump

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michigan drivers getting some relief at the pump. Based on the latest surveys from AAA Michigan and, gas prices in Detroit have fallen about 27 cents per gallon in the past week.

Currently, drivers in Detroit are paying an average of $3.88 for a gallon of regular unleaded, according to GasBuddy. AAA Michigan is reporting the average price in Metro Detroit is $3.909 per gallon.

Including the change in gas prices in Detroit during the past week, prices on Sunday were 14.4 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 5.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, according to GasBuddy.

“The national average has continued its downward decline in the last week, likely being helped by relief in the Great Lakes, a region that had been plagued with refining issues that have seemingly been resolved,” said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “While the national average stands higher than it did a year ago, we likely will see the average decline, and for motorists in the Great Lakes, the downward trend should mean well needed relief at the pump. Areas of California may see prices rising slightly in the days ahead, but at this time we aren’t seeing any short term price spikes across the United States,” DeHaan said.
