Gas Sells For 47 Cents Per Gallon In Northern Michigan [PHOTO]

DEARBORN (WWJ/AP) — AAA Michigan says gas prices statewide have decreased by about 13 cents in the past week.

The Dearborn-based auto club says the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $1.74 per gallon on Sunday. That's about 19 cents less than it was at the same point last year.

Prices are much lower in one northern Michigan town. A station in Houghton Lake posted sub-$1 prices on Sunday, dropping as far as 47 cents per gallon.

The lowest average price was about $1.63 per gallon in the Lansing area, while the highest average was about $1.85 per gallon in the Marquette area.

The last time the statewide average gas price dipped below $1.75 was in January 2009.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
