MICHIGAN, USA — Gas prices in Michigan have reached $3.27 per gallon, setting a new 2021-high, according to AAA.
The price is 13 cents more than this time last month and $1.06 more than this time last year.
“Despite a slight decrease in demand, Michigan drivers continue to see higher prices at the pump,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “With crude oil prices remaining above $70 a barrel, gas prices could likely stay above $3 a gallon throughout the busy summer driving season.”
Motorists are paying an average of $49 for a full 15-gallon tank of gas, which is an increase of about $10 from when prices were their highest last January.
According to AAA, Metro Detroit, Lansing and Flint are seeing the highest averages, while Benton Harbor, Traverse City and Ann Arbor are seeing the lowest.
