Gas prices keep dropping in Tucson

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson continues to pump the lowest-costing fuel in Arizona and is one of the few cities in the state to see prices drop in the past month.

According to AAA Arizona, a gallon of gas in Arizona went up a half-cent to $3.51 while the rest of the country averaged a .2 cents increase to $3.651.

"Geopolitical tensions and three straight weeks of crude going for over $100 a barrel have caused prices to creep up in some areas," said Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs for AAA Arizona. "Unless crude prices start to recede, motorists can expect some stagnation in prices."

Tucson's current fuel average sits around $3.33 per gallon. Flagstaff holds the highest state average at $3.70 per gallon.

AAA Arizona provided the following chart of pump prices throughout the state:
