Michigan gas prices continue to trend lower as the Christmas holiday travel season is set to begin.

AAA reports the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas dropped five cents in the past week to $3.14.

Prices at the pump have been falling since the first week of November when the average price was $3.43.

It’s some relief for the estimated 3.3 million Michiganders who’ll be travelling during the holiday season from December 23 and January 2.

Gas prices are still about a dollar more than this time last year.
