The cost of gas has been on a steady decline over the last month after hitting a peak of more than $3 per gallon in May.

Metro Detroit’s prices have closely followed national trends, but in recent weeks, our prices have decreased faster than the country’s average.

Low crude oil costs have caused the sharp decrease in about 19 states, according to AAA Michigan.

For the list of lowest prices in the city, see GasBuddy’s compilation here! 

And with the money you save from gas prices being low, why not treat the family to a nice, holiday outing at the zoo…
