Gas prices across Michigan are down an average of 7 cents compared to last week, according to research compiled by AAA of Michigan.  Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $2.53 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 8 cents cheaper than this time last month but 44 cents more than this time last year.

Gas prices in the Warrendale area range from $2.39 per gallon for regular unleaded to $2.47 per gallon. This includes both the stations in the Warrendale neighborhood of Detroit as well as those nearby in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights.

Motorists are paying an average of $38 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline. This is a discount of $6 from when prices were their highest last July.

“Many motorists across the nation saw gas prices increase last week as a record number of travelers hit the road for the year-end holidays,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “Michigan drivers are now seeing a decrease in prices following the holidays.”

Compared to last week, Metro Detroit’s average daily gas price decreased slightly. Metro Detroit’s current average is $2.57 per gallon, 3 cents less than last week’s average and 53 cents more than this time last year.

The most expensive gas price averages are in Ann Arbor ($2.60), Metro Detroit ($2.57), and Flint ($2.50). Meanwhile the cheapest gas price averages are in Traverse City ($2.34), Jackson ($2.42), and Grand Rapids ($2.45).
