Lansing gas prices have fallen 9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.81 per gallon, according to online price monitor GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices in Lansing are 30.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, but are the same compared to a year ago.

The lowest price in the state today is $2.39 per gallon while the highest is $3.09 per gallon. 

There’s no fooling motorists, gas prices have continued to surge. For the seventh straight week the national average has continued to rise, unabated, due to seasonal impacts. The run-up this spring has felt worse than prior years, and thus far, the national average is up nearly 50 cents per gallon from our 2019 low. Unfortunately, this a rut we’ll be stuck in yet for at least a few more weeks, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 3.9 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.69.  The national average is up 26.5 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 3.5 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.
