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 $2.20 per gallon, an increase of nearly 2 cents from last week.

This week’s national average is $2.31 per gallon, up by 3 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say prices have remained relatively steady over the last month due to lower driving demand and an oversupplied market.

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 $2.42.

South Carolina has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.06 a gallon and California the highest at $2.97.
