PHOENIX (AP) - Gasoline 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 $2.16 a gallon, up by nearly a penny from last week.

This week’s national average is $2.31 per gallon, an increase of more than a nickel from last week.

Triple-A analysts say Arizona’s gasoline prices are at their lowest level heading into the Memorial Day holiday weekend since 2005.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $1.98 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.35.

Mississippi has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.07 a gallon and California has the highest at $2.80.
