AAA Michigan says gas prices statewide have gone up by nearly 25 cents a gallon over the past week.

The Dearborn-based auto club says the average price per gallon for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline was $2.96 on Sunday. That's about 97 cents less than at the same time last year.

The club says the spike in gas prices can be attributed in part to refinery problems in the Midwest that have hampered production.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state. The club says the lowest average price per gallon was about $2.73 in the Marquette area, while the highest price was about $2.99 in the Ann Arbor area.
