Gas Prices Trend Cheaper on the Week


Motorists across most of the country are paying less for fuel this week. The statewide average is down almost a penny to $2.371 per gallon. Nationwide, prices shed nearly 3 cents to $2.525.

“The question isn’t how low will they go, but how long will we see prices decline," said Michelle Donati, spokesperson for AAA Arizona. "A handful of major refineries are undergoing maintenance. If production slows at a high rate and/or if crude oil prices jump, these events could push pump prices back up in late February or March."

Texas and California hold the lowest and highest average price for the lower 48 states at $2.264 and $3.324 per gallon.
