As U.S. gasoline demand strengthened and supply declined, the national gas price average jumped two-cents on the week to $2.874 per gallon. Meanwhile, Arizona's gas price average is $2.917, which is one-cent less expensive on the week, 10-cents less than last month and 69-cents more than a year ago. 

“As crude and gasoline inventories tighten, gas prices remain volatile," said Michelle Donati, spokeswoman for AAA Arizona. "On the week, pump prices increased as much as 11-cents for some states with others, including Arizona, seeing decreases."

Alabama and California hold the lowest and highest average price for the lower 48 states at $2.575 and $3.623 per gallon.
