Gas prices are up about 4-cents per gallon on average in MI this week according to AAA and holding relatively steady at about $2.36/gallon statewide.

Gas prices are up about four cents per gallon on average in MI this week, according to AAA.

Between June 1 to June 25, the state average was $2.31, two cents cheaper than the national average.

AAA predicts gas prices won't fall much further this summer and will likely go up as the low prices encourage more people to get out on the road. "And when travelers spend less at the pump, they are left with cash to spend on lodging, shopping and dining out".

Gasoline prices declined in line with the falling price of crude.

The lower gas prices in Florida are in Tampa-St.
