American motorists are bracing for further increases in gas pump prices this summer after average national prices rose 12 cents in the past week alone. AAA says drivers are experiencing "sticker shock" as increased summer demand, unrest in Egypt and production disruptions in the U.S. and other countries push up the price of crude oil and gasoline. The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline was $3.67 a gallon on Friday, July 19, 2013.
AAA Michigan says gasoline prices have risen about 3 cents during the past week to a statewide average of about $3.66 per gallon.
The auto club says Monday the average is about 34 cents per gallon less than this time last year.
Of the cities it surveys, AAA Michigan says the cheapest price for self-serve unleaded fuel is in the Detroit area, where it's about $3.61 a gallon. The highest average is in the Marquette area at about $3.76 a gallon.
Dearborn-based AAA Michigan surveys 2,800 Michigan gas stations daily.
