Metro Detroit Gas Prices Start To Increase

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Last week brought news that gas prices will spike this summer, potentially up to $2.70 a gallon.

And the trend has started: AAA Michigan says gas prices statewide have risen by about 15 cents per gallon in the past week.

The Dearborn-based auto club says early Monday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.45 per gallon. That’s about 36 cents more than it was at the same point last year.

AAA says the lowest average price was about $2.39 per gallon in the Marquette area. The highest average was about $2.48 in the Jackson area.

The Detroit-area’s average is about $2.45 per gallon, roughly 14 cents less than last week’s average.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
