AAA Says Gas Prices On The Rise Early 2020

Prices at the pump are on the rise early in the new year, both in Michigan and across the country.

AAA says the national average for a gallon of regular gas has jumped to an average of $2.58.

Here in Michigan, the average is just a bit higher at $2.60 a gallon.

That’s about a 7 cent gain in the last week.

AAA says wholesale gas and crude prices saw temporary spikes following the rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

But they say recent calming should bring those prices back down.

Traverse City has the lowest average gas prices in the state at $2.34 a gallon.
