AZ average gasoline prices up again, Tucson cheapest


Arizona motorists are paying more at the pump again this week.

Officials with AAA Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $3.62 a gallon. That's more than 13 cents higher than last week and a rise of 52 cents over the past month.

Tucson has the lowest average gasoline price in Arizona at $3.37 a gallon while Scottsdale has the highest at $3.74.

This week's national average is $3.77 per gallon, up by 15 cents from last week.

AAA analysts say the price rise has been propelled since mid-January by regional refinery issues and the approaching switchover to summer-blend gasoline.

Wyoming has the lowest average gas prices in the continental U.S. at $3.21 a gallon with California having the highest at $4.20 a gallon.
