PHOENIX (AP) - Gasoline prices around Arizona remain under $2 a gallon this week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $1.98 a gallon.

That’s a decrease of half a cent from last week and marks Arizona’s lowest gasoline average at the start of a new year since 2009.

Triple-A Arizona analysts say the statewide average is expected to remain below $3 per gallon in 2016.

This week’s national average is $1.99 per gallon, down by less than a penny from last week.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $1.79 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.17.

Missouri has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $1.70 a gallon with California the highest at $2.88.
