Statewide Average Daily Gas Price Up Four Cents

Lansing, Mich. - Compared to last week, the statewide average price for gas has gone up four more cents.

The state wide average is currently $2.49 per gallon with the Traverse City area having the cheapest gas and the Ann Arbor area with the most expensive.
