Gasoline Prices on Rise

State average up nearly 4 cents to $3.12 in one week

Arizona motorists are paying more at the pump for the second consecutive week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $3.12 a gallon. That's nearly 4 cents higher than last week.

This week's national average is $3.32 per gallon, down by almost 3 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say the price rise is typical for this time of year in Arizona as spring approaches and demand for gasoline starts to pick up.

Tucson has the lowest average gasoline price in Arizona at $2.94 a gallon while Flagstaff has the highest at $3.30.

Wyoming has the lowest average gasoline prices in the continental U.S. at $2.81 a gallon with New York having the highest at $3.72 a gallon.
