American motorists are bracing for further increases in gas pump prices this summer after average national prices rose 12 cents in the past week alone. AAA says drivers are experiencing "sticker shock" as increased summer demand, unrest in Egypt and production disruptions in the U.S. and other countries push up the price of crude oil and gasoline.

Fuel prices have risen again across Arizona to the highest per-gallon price in six months.

Triple-A Arizona reports the state average has bumped up by 1.3 cents to $3.379 per gallon – the highest average the state has seen since September 2013. Tucson drivers continue to pay the lowest cost at $3.291 a gallon while Flagstaff is at the high end at $3.536.

Spokesperson Linda Gorman said even with the 12-cent increase in March, the current prices still represent a mild year for fuel prices.

“As such, we’re projecting peak prices for the year should be lower than what we’ve seen in previous years, barring unforeseen circumstances,” she said in a press release.
