According to AAA, Michigan's current statewide average is about $2.31 per gallon. That is the same costs that were reported in the previous week's survey.

Pump prices are higher overall because of cuts in global oil production, but increased US output and low demand has led to a leveling out of prices over the last couple of weeks. The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded was $2.28 on Monday, an increase of a penny from last week, down seven cents from a month ago and up by 59 cents over previous year.

After 36 consecutive days of declines, gas prices ticked up slightly over the weekend across Florida, though motorists didn't see a difference at the pump.

In metro Detroit, the average is about $2.26 per gallon. OPEC will meet on May 25 to determine whether or not to extend the production cut.

That's 9 cents lower than the national average but 46 cents higher than the MA price a year ago.

"The era of falling gasoline prices will likely be coming to an end soon at a gas station near you", said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for, in the release. A year ago, it was $1.70.
