AAA: Michigan gas prices set a new 2019 high

DEARBORN — Gas prices in Michigan are up 4 cents compared to a week ago.

Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $2.52 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is down 1 cent after setting a new 2019 high of $2.53 per gallon on March 8. While this price is 23 cents more than this time last month, drivers are still paying about 7 cents less than this same time last year, according to AAA-The Auto Club group.

Motorists are paying an average of $38 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; a discount of $9 from when prices were their highest last May.

“While prices may continue to fluctuate, the springtime increase is not over yet,” said Nancy Cain, AAA spokesperson. “As the nation exits the winter driving season, motorists should expect pump prices to continue to rise as demand increases and stocks of gasoline tighten.”

The most expensive gas price averages were found in Saginaw ($2.56), Ann Arbor ($2.55) and Grand Rapids ($2.53).

AAA found the least expensive gas price averages were in Traverse City ($2.27), Benton Harbor ($2.49) and Flint ($2.50).
