According to AAA Michigan, prices fell 12 cents compared to a week ago, down to $2.48 per gallon. That's the same as last month at this time, but 41 cents more than this time last year.

For metro Detroit, gas dropped seven cents to $2.52 per gallon, 43 cents more than this time last year.

"Growing stocks amid lower demand have helped ease pump prices," said Adrienne Woodland a spokesperson for AAA.
