Gas prices are falling in Arizona, good news for those on the road this holiday weekend.

AAA Arizona spokesperson Julian Paredes says the state average went down 2 cents, though that’s sitting a little higher than the national average.

“Gas prices across Arizona are significantly cheaper compared to this time last year, when it was almost $4 a gallon," Paredes said.

The average price in Arizona is $3.56 per gallon, while the national average is about 4 cents cheaper.
