PHOENIX (AP) - Gasoline prices around Arizona are slightly lower at the pumps this week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.20 a gallon, 3 cents lower than last week.

This week’s national average is $2.18 per gallon, down by more than 3 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say Arizona’s prices are the lowest at this time of year since 2004.

They say prices should remain relatively low compared to recent years for the rest of the summer, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $1.97 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.43.

South Carolina has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $1.86 a gallon and California the highest at $2.82.
