AAA Michigan: Statewide average gas prices fall 8 cents

17 Juillet 2017

The cost to fill up in the Palmetto State rose 1.2 cents over the past week to an average of $1.96 per gallon, according to gas price services GasBuddy and motor club AAA.

The national average for one gallon of regular unleaded is $2.25-that's a penny less than a week ago, but three 3 cents more than this time previous year, a news release said.

The national average has decreased 5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.3 cents per gallon higher than this day a year ago.

The Florida and Jacksonville average prices per gallon of gas still remain lower than the national average of $2.25, AAA officials said.

"As expected, gasoline prices over the last week were mixed". The lowest prices were seen in Tampa where the average cost of a gallon of gas was running at $2.01. "Oil prices, after sagging to close the month of June, had started July by surging, only to let up shortly after". That's about 2 cents less than at the same point previous year.

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

"It remains a bit of a mystery what, if anything, they may decide, but all eyes will be focused on any policy changes or production changes", DeHaan said.

$2.86/g in 2016, $4.18/g in 2015, $4.07/g in 2014, $4.05/g in 2013 and $3.69/g in 2012.

By contrast, Decatur has the cheapest gas, at a price of $2.12 per gallon.
