DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- AAA Michigan says gasoline prices are up 17 cents per gallon over the past week to a statewide average of $4.15.
The auto club says Monday the statewide average is about $1.26 per gallon higher than last year at this time.
Last week, in addition to results of its regular survey typically released on Mondays, AAA Michigan reported Tuesday that the statewide average had topped $4 a gallon.
Of the cities it surveys, AAA Michigan says the cheapest price for self-serve unleaded fuel is in the Flint, Lansing, Saginaw, Bay City and Traverse City areas, where it's $4.13 a gallon. The highest average can be found in the Marquette area at $4.19.
Dearborn-based AAA Michigan surveys 2,800 Michigan gas stations daily.
