5.2.16: Statewide average gas prices rise 13 cents
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — AAA Michigan says gas prices statewide have risen by about 13 cents a gallon in the past week.
The Dearborn-based auto club says Sunday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.30 per gallon. That’s about 22 cents less than it was at the same point last year.
AAA says relatively inexpensive gas prices are boosting driving and 2016 could be a record year for gasoline consumption and annual miles traveled.
The lowest average price was about $2.23 per gallon in the Marquette area, while the highest average was about $2.37 per gallon in the Jackson and Lansing areas.
AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
Monday morning, gas prices in the Grand Rapids area ranged from $2.11 to $2.38 a gallon.
