You’ll probably be paying a bit more to fill your gas tank this week.
AAA Michigan is reporting that the state average daily gas price is up to $2.42 per gallon for regular. That’s 13 cents higher than last week (the third highest rise in the nation) and 14 cents higher than at the same time last year.
Specifically in Metro Detroit, the local average matches what is happening statewide, but up 6 cents higher than last year at this time.
AAA expects demand to grow as the summer driving season continues after weeks of lows. Compared to the rest of the nation, Michigan has the 11th most expensive gas prices.
