DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — AAA Michigan says average gas prices statewide are up about 3 cents from a week ago to about $2.91 per gallon.

The Dearborn-based auto club says Monday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded is about 5 cents more than a year ago. The price eased over the weekend after setting a new 2019 high of $2.93 per gallon Friday, but AAA says more increases are likely with the summer driving season approaching.
