LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — You can plan on having some relief at the gas pump this week, as prices are continuing to decrease.

Michigan’s average gas prices are now 65 cents less than what they were a month ago.
Michiganders are paying an average of $66 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline.
“If gas demand remains low as stocks increase, alongside a continuing reduction in crude prices, drivers will likely see pump prices decline,” said Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson, AAA-The Auto Club Group.
