Gas prices in Michigan are 7.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and $1.42 per gallon lower than a year ago.


"It's becoming a bit clearer that those 99 cent per gallon gas prices from the COVID-19 pandemic are solidly behind us as gasoline demand rebounds across the country as cities and states slowly reopen,“ said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.


”The lowest priced stations in the country will see some upward movement, but most areas will still see declines.”


According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Michigan is priced at $1.05 per gallon Monday while the most expensive is $2.39 per gallon, a difference of $1.34 per gallon.


The national average price of gasoline has risen 1.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $1.75 per gallon Monday.


The national average is down 14.8 cents per gallon from a month ago and $1.15 per gallon lower than a year ago.


"While oil may continue to struggle, a disconnect between low oil prices and rising gasoline prices has emerged at the hands of refineries that have slowed production over the past month to avoid flooding the market with unwanted gasoline,“ DeHaan said.
