AAA: Michigan Gas Prices Declining, But Still High In Metro Detroit

(CBS DETROIT) -- After weeks of record-high gas prices, Michigan is seeing some relief.

According to AAA, gas prices in Metro Detroit are down to $4.05 per gallon for regular gas as of Wednesday.

It is about 12 cents cheaper than last week, however, still $1.22 higher than last year.

"A decrease in demand alongside higher gasoline stocks has led to lower pump prices," Adrienne Woodland, spokesperson for AAA-The Auto Club Group, said on Monday. "If these trends continue as crude oil prices decline, motorists could likely see gas prices move lower."

The state average sits at $3.99 a gallon -- cheaper than the national average of $4.16.
