The average price for gas in Michigan jumped 11 cents last week, AAA Michigan reports.
Drivers are now paying an average price of $2.52 per gallon for regular unleaded. AAA Michigan says it now costs $37.80 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline.
“Reduced supply and strong demand were the driving forces behind the increased prices,” said Gary Bubar, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “As supplies continue to fluctuate, prices at the pump will change. Demand is forecast to increase as we near the holiday season and that could lead to increased prices.”
The most expensive gas price averages were found in Ann Arbor, metro Detroit and Benton Harbor. The least expensive were found in Traverse City, Jackson and Marquette.
