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

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $1.82 a gallon - an increase of almost 22 cents from last week.

This week’s national average is $1.96 per gallon, up nearly 12 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say the jump is due to the continued rise in crude oil price and decline in supplies and is expected to continue in the coming weeks.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $1.66 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $1.98.

New Jersey has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $1.71 a gallon with California the highest at $2.64.
