Michigan's average gas price is the second highest in the country, following Hawaii.
The current average in Michigan is $4.10. According to AAA Michigan, this is 23-cents higher than last week and 47-cents higher than the same time last year. While the national average is at $3.62... a penny less than last week. Experts say the reason for Michigan's high gas prices is due to refinery issues in the Great Lakes region. Refineries that serve Michigan and surrounding states are low on supplies. A AAA spokesperson said that two different refineries have been down for facility issues, but thankfully it is only a temporary situation and the prices should come down early this month. Out of 10 metro areas, Marquette has the lowest average in the state with $4.03 per-gallon.
