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

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.16 per gallon, down by less than a penny from last week.

This week’s national average is $2.22 per gallon, a drop of almost 1 cent from last week.

Triple-A analysts say refinery maintenance and unplanned outages have placed several markets under pressure, but the volatility should subside once seasonal maintenance wraps up next month.

Tucson currently has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $2.04 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.39.

Missouri has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.01 a gallon and California the highest at $2.77.
