DEARBORN, MI— Gas prices in Michigan are down 11 cents from a week ago. Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $3.16 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is a new 2023-low. This price is 20 cents less than this time last month and 49 cents less than this time last year.

Motorists are paying an average of $47 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; a discount of about $29 from 2022's highest price last June.

“After the Thanksgiving holiday, Michigan drivers are seeing the lowest gas prices all year as the state average sets a new 2023-low,” said Howard Hughey, Michigan Public Affairs Director, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “If demand declines, alongside lower crude oil prices, this downward trend could continue through the week.”

Compared to last week, Metro Detroit’s average daily gas price decreased. Metro Detroit’s current average is $3.22 per gallon, about 9 cents less than last week’s average and 26 cents less than this same time last year.
