Gasoline prices in Arizona are lower at the pumps this week
PHOENIX (AP) -- Gasoline prices around Arizona are slightly lower at the pumps this week.
Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.16 per gallon, down by about a penny from last week.
This week's national average is $2.23 per gallon, a drop of more than 2 cents from last week.
Triple-A analysts say prices in the Rocky Mountain region remain among the most stable and a continued drop in demand should help push down prices further in Arizona, barring unforeseen circumstances.
Tucson currently has Arizona's lowest average gasoline price at $2.04 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.37.
New Jersey has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.02 a gallon and California the highest at $2.77.
