Triple-A expects 1-point-5 million Michiganders will hit the road this holiday weekend.

(DEARBORN, MI) – Triple-A Michigan says gas prices have dropped

23-cents since last week. Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $3.81 per gallon for regular unleaded which is 31 cents less than this time last month but still 45 cents more than this time last year.

Despite the recent declines, pump prices could still set new record highs for the holiday. In Michigan, the highest daily average price for Thanksgiving was set back in 2012, at $3.61 per gallon, which is 20 cents less than the current average price.

Currently the highest price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline is in Jackson at $3.95… and the lowest is in Detroit at $3.65 a gallon.
