Gasoline prices around Arizona are slightly higher at the pump this week.
Here’s another reason to be thankful this holiday season — the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table is down slightly from last year.
It's not a big breakthrough.
Gas prices have risen more than 50 cents in the past month, but AAA of Arizona says the state is still paying less for gas than the rest of the nation.
Arizona motorists are paying about the same at the pump as they did last week.
Arizona gas prices, and those across the country, may jump now that fuel production has taken a hit from Tropical Storm Isaac, AAA Arizona reported Monday.
Just the thought that oil prices may go up could be one reason they are, according to one Arizona State University professor.
With gas prices continuing their meteoric rise, motorists are likely looking at a long spring of shelling out more at the pump, with little reprieve in sight. To stretch your dollars, be sure to heed the following tips:
For the first time in 11 weeks, the price of fuel in Arizona is making gains. Statewide, motorists are paying an average of $3.384 per gallon, an increase of nearly a penny from last week, yet 38 cents below the state's peak summer price of $3.764. Nationwide, motorists are filling up for $3.706, a 1.7 cent jump from last week.
As the price at the pump climbs across the nation, Arizona has maintained a 10-week decline. For the second week in a row, Arizona has the lowest priced gas in the country. Across the state, motorists are paying an average of $3.376 per gallon - a drop of 1.5 cents from last week. Nationwide, motorists are filling up for $3.689, a 3.4-cent jump from last week. After a week of bipolar shifts, crude prices finally took a turn north this week, settling near the high $90 mark, according to AAA Arizona.
