AAA Michigan has one more reason for holiday travelers to be thankful: Gas prices statewide have decreased by about 23 cents in the past week.

The Dearborn-based auto club says the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $1.94 per gallon on Sunday. That’s about 94 cents less than it was at the same point last year. The price drop comes just before Thanksgiving and one of the busiest travel weeks of the year.

The lowest average price was about $1.84 per gallon in the Flint area, while the highest average was about $2.06 per gallon in the Marquette area.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
