We’re paying about $1.42 less for gas than we did a year ago.
AAA Michigan’s weekly fuel gauge survey shows prices rose by 20 cents to a statewide average of 2.48 per gallon.
Everyone knew it probably couldn’t last…and it didn’t.
It marks the fourth consecutive week the statewide average has risen above $2 a gallon.
Gas prices rose in Metro Detroit, and Michigan, for the third straight week, AAA reported.
There’s no denying metro Detroiters have been enjoying the low gas prices lately. But that doesn’t mean a 25 cent bump at the pump is going to go unnoticed.
It marks the third consecutive week that the statewide average price has remained below $2.
The plummeting pump prices – now pegged by AAA at $2.13 per gallon on average – have had an “immediate impact on consumer psyche.”
AAA Michigan says statewide gas prices have dropped about 17 cents a gallon in the last week.
The price of gas is lower than it has been in about five years in metro Detroit.
