DEARBORN, Mich. (WLNS) — Gas prices in Michigan have decreased three cents compared to a week ago. The average cost per gallon for regular unleaded is $3.21. This price is one cent less than this time last month but still $1.09 more than this time last year.

Michiganders are paying an average of $48 for a full tank of gas; an increase of about $9 from when prices were their highest last January.

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the demand of gas has also increased.

“With supply and demand largely in sync, motorists are beginning to see some stability at the pump,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group. “While this trend will likely minimize fluctuations, high crude prices will keep gas prices elevated through this week.”

In comparison to last week, Metro Detroit’s average daily gas price has decreased moderately. The current average for Metro Detroit is $3.26 per gallon. This is one cent less than last week’s average, but still $1.09 more than this time last year.

-Metroit Detroit ($3.26)

-Marquette ($3.24)

-Ann Arbor ($3.25)

The least expensive gas price averages:

-Traverse City ($3.15)

-Flint ($3.16)
