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 $2.15 a gallon, down by nearly a penny from last week.

This week’s national average is $2.26 per gallon, an increase of more than 6 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say Arizona’s gasoline prices are stabilizing and if supply can keep pace with demand, averages should remain relatively low heading into the summer driving season.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $1.96 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.35.

Mississippi has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.02 a gallon and California has the highest at $2.80.
