The current statewide average cost for a gallon of regular gas was $2.393 as of July 24. That means Michigan has the nation’s 13th-highest gas price. A 7.3-cent tax increase on each gallon of gas, which went into effect earlier this year, is contributing to that rank.

In the Midwest, only Pennsylvania had a higher price ($2.502). South Carolina ($1.985) had the lowest price in the U.S. The national average was $2.284, according to AAA.
