AAA: Gas prices in Michigan up 6 cents

Associated Press

Dearborn – AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide are up 6 cents in the past week to about $2.34 per gallon following a string of declines linked to lower oil prices.

The Dearborn-based auto club says early Monday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline increased after recently sinking to its lowest level since July 2017.

Major oil producers on Friday including the OPEC cartel agreed to cut global oil production – sending oil prices higher.

The state’s highest average was $2.42 per gallon in the Marquette area. The lowest was in the Traverse City area at $2.29 a gallon.

The Detroit-area’s average was down about 3 cents from a week ago to $2.33.
