Drivers in Ann Arbor will pay more for their gasoline than anyone else in the state this 4th of July holiday.
For the ninth week in a row, AAA says the highest average price for gas can be found in the Ann Arbor area at $3.06 a gallon. The lowest is in Marquette at $2.87.
AAA spokesperson Susan Hiltz explains the high price.

A year ago, during this same time, the average price in Ann Arbor was $2.35.
