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

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.19 per gallon, up by a penny from last week.

This week’s national average is $2.33 per gallon, down by over 2 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say the decrease nationally can be attributed to less demand and adequate supply, but prices could continue to rise in Arizona.

The East Valley that includes Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Queen Creek and Ahwatukee has Arizona’s lowest average gasoline price at $2.12 a gallon with Flagstaff the highest at $2.39.



South Carolina has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.09 a gallon and California the highest at $2.80.
