(WXYZ) — Gas prices in Michigan and in metro Detroit are up slightly this week.

According to AAA Michigan, prices are up 2 cents in the state to an average of $3.37 per gallon. That's 14 cents higher than last month and 73 cents more than this time last year.

In metro Detroit, the average price is $3.40 per gallon, 1 cent more than last week and 76 cents more than this time last year.

According to AAA, crude prices are still up a little bit due to rising tensions in Russia and Ukraine.

"Despite a decrease in demand, higher crude oil prices helped put pressure on Michigan pump prices pushing them slightly higher," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "As crude prices continue to climb, pump prices will likely follow suit."
