LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Average gas prices in the state of Michigan are now below $3 per gallon, according to AAA.
Gas prices are down 7 cents from a week ago, and Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $2.99 per gallon for regular unleaded gas.

Locally, Lansing drivers can find some of the lowest prices in the state, according to AAA. The average per gallon price in Lansing is $2.91.
According to AAA, increasing supply and low gas demand are pushing prices lower.
“As the year comes to a close, Michigan motorists are seeing some of the lowest gas prices of 2022,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “If demand remains low and stocks rise, drivers could see pump prices continue to decrease through next year.”
