Gas prices in Michigan are up 9 cents compared to last week. Michigan drivers are now paying an average price of $2.20 per gallon for regular unleaded. This price is 23 cents more than this time last month but still 61 cents less than this time last year. The most expensive gas price average is in Marquette at $2.28 per gallon, the least expensive gas price can be found in Traverse City at $2.07 per gallon. Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson for the Auto Club Group said "If demand continues to trend higher, motorists will likely see pump prices continue to increase through early July," According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand is estimated to have increased significantly and the increase in demand has helped to lift pump prices. Compared to last week, Metro Detroit's average daily gas price increased to the current average of $2.23 per gallon. That is 7 cents more than last week but still 59 cents less than this time last year.
