DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- AAA Michigan says gasoline prices have risen about 30 cents during the past week to a statewide average of about $3.83 per gallon.

The auto club says Monday the average is about 26 cents per gallon more than this time last year. The rise comes amid higher crude oil prices and a drop in U.S. supplies.

Of the cities it surveys, AAA Michigan says the cheapest price for self-serve unleaded fuel is in the Traverse City area, where it's about $3.75 a gallon. The highest average is in Ann Arbor area at about $3.85 a gallon.

Dearborn-based AAA Michigan surveys 2,800 Michigan gas stations daily. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
