Michigan gas prices drop 15 cents in past week

AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide have dropped about 15 cents from a week ago at about $2.75 per gallon.

The Dearborn-based auto club says Monday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded is about 27 cents less than a year ago as higher stock levels of gasoline make up for higher demand.

AAA says the state's highest average was in Marquette at around $2.83. The lowest price was in the Lansing area at roughly $2.69 per gallon.

Prices in the Detroit area were about $2.77 per gallon, down about 9 cents from a week ago.
