Gas prices on the rise in metro Detroit

Motorist fuel up at a gas station in Riverside on Wednesday

AAA Northeast reports Monday that the cost of self-serve, regular gas still averages about $2.23 per gallon.

Gas prices in Alabama and Tennessee on Monday were listed at $2.05, in SC prices were at $2.03 and $2.17 in Georgia.

As of Sunday, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $2.279, up almost a penny from last week, down 8 cents from a month ago and an increase of 58 cents from previous year. The highest average was about $2.38 in the Marquette area.

Right now, MI has the 18th-highest prices in the U.S.

San Antonio- $2.02/g, down 1.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.03/g.

According to Triple-A the increase can be attributed to global cuts in oil production and the ongoing tensions between the United States and Iran.

"Gas prices should remain steady in the near-term before taking their seasonal upswing as we head into the spring".

Gas prices around the Stateline were down again over this past week, but gasoline experts say they could soon be on the rise. A gallon of regular had been selling for $1.705 at this time in 2016, according to AAA data.

On a 20-gallon fill-up, a motorist is paying more than $10.50 locally and more than $11.60 nationally than last February.

The average price in OH was $2.12 early Monday, making it the 11th least-expensive state in the country.
