DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- AAA Michigan says gasoline prices have risen above a statewide average of $4 per gallon for the first time since 2008.
The auto club says Tuesday that prices for self-serve unleaded fuel rose 6 cents per gallon since Monday to a statewide average of $4.04. That's $1.20 per gallon higher than last year at this time.
AAA Michigan says the last time the average hit $4 was Sept. 19, 2008, when it was $4.03 per gallon.
Dearborn-based AAA Michigan surveys 2,800 Michigan gas stations daily. It typically releases its gas prices report each Monday. But the auto club says it decided to put out a special edition of its gas prices report Tuesday because the average topped $4 a gallon.

    In Jackson it is $4.17 and it is the same in Kalamazoo. I think the cost is being artifically driven up through speculators. I guess this will mean less driving.
