PHOENIX (AP) — Despite the switch to winter blend gasoline and abundant crude oil supply, prices around Arizona are slightly higher at the pumps this week.
Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.13 per gallon, more than 2 cents higher than last week.
This week's national average is $2.24 per gallon, up by almost 4 cents from last week.
Triple-A analysts says Arizona's gas prices could keep rising due to continued refinery maintenance and the threat of hurricane activity along the East Coast.
Tucson currently has Arizona's lowest average gasoline price at $1.95 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.35.
Texas has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2 a gallon and California the highest at $2.79.
