Saving green at the pump

Posted: Updated:

Arizona drivers can finally see a drop in prices at the pump this week, and Tucson holds its title as having the lowest costing fuel in the state.

In the last week, the statewide average fell 1.2 cents, at $3.735 per gallon. Prices dropped nationally by nearly two cents to $3.701 per gallon.

"While it's good to see prices finally reverse course, it is too soon to say whether retail prices have peaked for the year," Linda Gorman, Director of Communications and Public Affairs for AAA Arizona said. "However, should we experience another bump in prices, AAA maintains that prices will likely crest lower and earlier than in recent years, barring unforeseen circumstances."

Tucson holds the lowest fuel average in Arizona at $3.521 per gallon. Scottsdale has the most expensive fuel at $3.813 per gallon, respectively.

The nation's cheapest fuel average is in Wyoming at $3.315 per gallon, and California is the most expensive at $4.150 per gallon.
