Michigan gas prices are down 10 cents from a week ago with drivers paying an average of $3.57 per gallon for regular unleaded, AAA officials announced Monday.

This new price is 12 cents more than this time last month and 8 cents more than a year ago. Michigan drivers are paying an average of $53 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline, a discount of about $5 from 2023's highest price last August, according to an AAA-The Auto Club Group release.

"Michigan drivers are seeing cheaper gas prices after the long holiday weekend," said Adrienne Woodland, AAA-The Auto Club Group spokesperson, in a release. "If demand falls, alongside robust supply, pump prices could follow suit."

Compared to last week, Metro Detroit's average daily gas price gas has decreased. The current average is $3.54 per gallon, about 5 cents less than the average last week and 1 cent less than the same time in 2023.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Detroit was priced at $2.99 a gallon Sunday, while the most expensive was priced at $3.99.

The most expensive gas price averages are in Jackson ($3.68), Ann Arbor ($3.60) and Grand Rapids ($3.58).

The least expensive gas price averages are in Marquette ($3.48), Flint ($3.50) and Traverse City ($3.50).

The national gas price average went up 2 cents from last week and now stands at $3.51.
