Average gas prices increase across Michigan

A slight bump at the pump to start the week – Gas prices are about seven cents higher than they were last week – sitting at an average of $2.69 per gallon. Despite the increase, drivers are still paying about 31-cents less than this same time last year. AAA says maintenance issues at a Detroit refinery likely contributed to the recent spike in the state average. Across the region, pumps in Sanilac County are at $2.65 a gallon on average, while Macomb and Lapeer County pumps are asking about $2.67 a gallon, and gas in St. Clair County is hovering around the $2.70 mark.
