Arizona motorists are paying more at the pump again this week.
The average statewide price for regular gasoline is $3.62 a gallon, AAA Arizona said Thursday.
That’s more than 13 cents higher than last week and a rise of 52 cents over the past month.
Tucson has the lowest average gasoline price in Arizona at $3.37 a gallon — up 11 cents per gallon since last week.
This week’s national average is $3.77 per gallon, up 15 cents from last week.
AAA analysts say the price rise has been propelled since mid-January by regional refinery issues and the approaching switchover to summer-blend gasoline.
