PHOENIX (AP) - Gasoline prices around Arizona have risen sharply at the pumps this week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.83 a gallon. That’s up by more than 11 cents from last week and ends seven weeks of falling prices.

This week’s national average also is $2.77 per gallon, up by more than a penny from last week.

Triple-A analysts say the rise is due to lingering refinery issues and tight fuel supplies in California.

Tucson has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $2.49 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $3.02 per gallon.

South Carolina has the lowest average gas prices among states in the continental U.S. at $2.40 a gallon with Alaska the highest at $3.88.
