How low will they go? Arizona Pump Prices Continue to Fall

Phoenix, Nov. 21, 2013. Arizona pump prices maintained their free fall this week, shedding nearly 2 cents to $3.131 per gallon. Conversely, the national average ticked up 2.6 cents at $3.22 per gallon.

“Storms in the Midwest may have caused pump prices in other states to inch up, but Arizonans are enjoying another week of lower prices. In fact, we are on track to pay the lowest pump price for Thanksgiving since 2010,” said Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs for AAA Arizona. “Given current market factors, this is a trend we anticipate will continue through the holiday season.”

Lower pump prices are great news for the nearly 745,000 Arizonans expected to drive next week to their holiday destination. View AAA Arizona’s full Thanksgiving travel forecast here.
