DEARBORN, Mich., (July 22, 2019) – Gas prices in Michigan are down from last week. Michigan drivers are now paying an average price of $2.81 per gallon for regular unleaded, 13 cents less than a week ago, but 8 cents more than this time last month. Still, drivers are paying about 9 cents less than this time last year. 

Motorists are paying an average of $42 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline; a discount of $1.50 from when prices were their highest last May.

Pump prices around the nation have seen modest increases this week signaling that supply and demand are likely in sync and bringing stabilization to markets nationwide.  According to the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) report for the week ending July 12, total domestic stocks of gasoline grew by 3.6 million bbl to 232.8 million bbl.

Compared to last week, Metro Detroit’s average daily gas price decreased. Metro Detroit’s current average is $2.89 per gallon, about 6 cents less than last week’s average and 5 cents less than this same time last year.
