METRO DETROIT (WXYZ) — The average Michigan gas price is up 26 cents from last week, according to AAA. The average price for regular unleaded in Michigan is now $3.26 per gallon — 32 cents more than a month ago, but 5 cents less than a year ago. The average cost to fill up a 15-gallon gasoline truck is $48 — a $10 decrease from August 2023 when prices were the highest.

"Michigan motorists are seeing the highest gas prices so far this year," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "If demand continues to increase, alongside higher crude oil prices, drivers could see pump prices continue to rise."
