AAA Michigan says gas prices statewide have fallen by about 6 cents per gallon in the past week. The Dearborn-based auto club says late Sunday the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was about $2.42 per gallon. That's about 9 cents more than at the same point last year. AAA says the lowest average price was about $2.32 per gallon in the Saginaw, Bay City and Midland areas. 

The highest was about $2.46 in the Ann Arbor area. The Detroit-area's average fell about 1 cent from a week ago to $2.44 per gallon. It's the second consecutive week of declines for Detroit-area prices. AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state.
