LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Gas prices in the Capital City are now averaging $3.83 per gallon, according to a GasBuddy survey of more than 177 gas stations.

That is 69.6 cents lower than back in July, and 80 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

GasBuddy’s price reports show the cheapest place to fuel up in Lansing costs around $3.61 per gallon and the most expensive place to get gas is $4.24 per gallon.

Local gas prices are three cents below the national average of fuel prices, which are around $3.86 per gallon as of Monday.

AAA reports that the statewide average for gasoline in the Great Lakes State is $3.91.

“While Michigan motorists continue to see some relief at the pump, the decreases appear to be slowing down,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “If demand increases as we head into the close of summer, motorists could see prices rise slightly.”

Drivers are paying an average of $59 a gallon for a full-15 gallon tank of gas, which is around an $8 increase from 2021’s highest gas price last November.
