According to AAA, over the past week Michigan gas prices have steadied after weeks of decline. The average in Michigan on Monday morning was $3.10 per gallon says the organization. In perspective, that’s 19 cents less than this time last month, but almost 90 cents higher than this time last year.
The Flint area saw an average of $3.03 per gallon Monday morning compared to the lowest regional average in the state of $2.90 in Grand Rapids, and the highest of $3.26 per gallon in Marquette.
Filling up a 15-gallon gas tank costs $5 less now than the most recent price peak in November says AAA, but the downward trend in gasoline prices is threatened buy a new increase in crude oil prices.
