MICHIGAN — Continuing to move in a downward direction from a unprecedented stretch of record prices at the pump,  Gas prices in Michigan are down 11 cents from a week ago. Michigan drivers are now paying an average of $5.06 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 50 cents more than this time last month and $1.95 more than this time last year.

Berrien County drivers are paying an average of $4.93 per gallon and Cass County $4.94. Motorists are paying an average of more than $76 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline.

Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has decreased by 8 cents to $4.90 from a week ago primarily due to a decline in crude oil prices. 

The Energy Information Administration will not release gasoline demand/supply and domestic oil inventory levels data this week due to “systems issues.” However, if gas demand continues its downward trend from the previous week, it may contribute to pump price decreases this week. Additionally, the falling cost of oil will likely contribute to pump price decreases.
