DETROIT (FOX 2) - Michigan gas prices remained the same as last week, according to data from AAA.
Gas prices have been dropping for weeks, but are steady at an average of $3.10 per gallon, down 19 cents from last month but up 87 cents from this time a year ago.
Metro Detroit gas prices decreased by 1 cent from last week, but are still 22 cents higher than the state average.
At the close of Thursday’s formal trading session, WTI increased by 43 cents to settle at $76.99. In 2021, WTI racked up gains of about 59% versus a settlement of $48.52/bbl on Dec. 31, 2020, driven by pent-up fuel demand amid successful rollouts of COVID-19 vaccines, AAA said.
"After weeks of declining prices, Michigan motorists are beginning to see gas prices hold steady," said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "If crude oil prices continue to increase, pump prices will likely follow suit."
