DEARBORN (CBS Detroit/AP) — Gas prices across the state have reached an all time high.  AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide have risen about 9 cents in the past week.

The Dearborn-based auto club said late Sunday that the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.88 per gallon. Prices are about 34 cents more than at the same point last year and AAA says they’re at the highest point since 2015.

Michigan’s lowest average price was about $2.74 per gallon in the Marquette area. The highest was about $2.92 per gallon in the Jackson area.

The Detroit-area’s average daily gas price was about $2.86 per gallon, up about 8 cents from last week. Metro Detroit’s average is about 37 cents more than this same time last year.

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

    A bit off topic, but you might be surprised to know that (adjusted for inflation) gasoline prices are about as cheap (if not more) than during much of the last century. Combine that with the most fuel efficient cars ever, and driving is more affordable now than during most years in memory (though 1998 is still the best time we’ve ever had– until Elon Musk has all our cars running on solar power!): http://chesterenergyandpolicy.com/2018/05/07/road-tripping-through-time-tracking-gas-prices-and-fuel-efficiency-of-cars-to-determine-what-era-of-american-drivers-got-the-most-bang-for-their-buck/
