Gas prices up a penny

Gas prices statewide have gone up over the past week, albeit only a penny. AA of Michigan says the current statewide average daily gas price is currently $3.01 a gallon, which is about 59 cents more than last year. Across the state, the lowest prices can be found up north in the Traverse City area and the highest prices are again in the Ann Arbor Area. Local area pumps are slightly below the statewide average, asking $2.95 for a gallon of regular unleaded.
