Arizona average gasoline prices reach 5-month high

PHOENIX (AP) -

Gasoline prices for Arizona have hit a five-month high.

Officials with AAA Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $3.74 a gallon. That's more than 11 cents higher than last week and a rise of 56 cents since January.

This week's national average is $3.78 per gallon, up by less than a penny from last week.

AAA analysts say refinery maintenance and the higher cost of crude oil have kept gasoline prices high so far this year.

Tucson has the lowest average gasoline price in Arizona at $3.53 a gallon while Yuma has the highest at $3.86.

Wyoming has the lowest average gas prices in the continental U.S. at $3.28 a gallon with California having the highest at $4.23 a gallon.
