AAA: Gas Prices In Arizona Higher At The Pumps This Week

Mariana Dale/KJZZ

After more than a month of lower numbers, gasoline prices around the state are up this week. 

Officials with AAA Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.07 per gallon.

That’s up by 4 cents from last week. Tucson currently has the lowest average gasoline price at $1.87, while Flagstaff has the highest at $2.37. Despite that, AAA analysts expect drivers will pay the lowest Labor Day holiday gas prices in more than a decade.
