MICHIGAN, USA — Gas prices in Michigan continue to rise, with a 28-cent spike taking prices across the state to a new record high.
This week, the average cost of gas in the state is $4.32 per gallon of regular unleaded. This price is 35 cents more than last month and $1.24 more than May 2021. AAA says a full 15-gallon tank of gas will cost the average Michigander $64.
"Tight gasoline stocks in the Midwest, coupled with rising demand and high crude oil prices sent Michigan gas prices soaring to a new record high," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson for AAA-The Auto Club Group. "Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices remain above $105 per barrel."
Across Michigan, the cities paying the most for gas are Marquette ($4.39), Lansing ($4.35) and Saginaw ($4.35).
Cities paying the least for gas include Traverse City ($4.26), Ann Arbor ($4.30) and Metro Detroit ($4.30).
