AAA: Mich. gas prices fall 17 cents
Dearborn — AAA Michigan says statewide gas prices have dropped about 17 cents a gallon in the last week.
The auto club says the average price per gallon of self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was $2.06 on Sunday. That’s $1.34 less than a year ago.
This is the seventh consecutive week for falling prices. Statewide prices are at their lowest level in more than five years.
Dearborn-based AAA Michigan surveys fuel costs at 2,800 Michigan gas stations daily. It says the cheapest price was about $1.93 in the Flint area, Grand Rapids and Muskegon. The highest price was about $2.33 a gallon in the Marquette area.
The auto club says the Detroit-area average has fallen for the 17th week in a row, to about $2.07 a gallon.
