Dearborn – AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide have risen about 7 cents in the past week and are averaging about $3 per gallon.

The Dearborn-based auto club said late Sunday that the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is about 52 cents more than at the same point last year. Last Wednesday, AAA announced that the statewide average topped $3 per gallon for the first time in nearly three years.

Michigan’s lowest average price was about $2.90 in the Traverse City area. The highest was about $3.05 in the Ann Arbor area.

The Detroit-area’s average was about $3.01, up about 7 cents per gallon.

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