Michigan's lowest average price was about $2.37 per gallon in the Traverse City area. The highest was about $2.62 per gallon in the Marquette area. It was the third consecutive week that the Marquette area had the highest average.

The Detroit-area's average price dropped 3 cents to $2.47 per gallon.
