PHOENIX - Phoenix gas prices were at an average of $3.59 per gallon Monday, three cents higher than the national average, according to PhoenixGasPrices.com .
Phoenix gas prices were 1.2 cents per gallon lower exactly one year ago, but the national average is still lower than last year’s prices.
Last month, the Phoenix average was 18.9 cents higher.
"While current factors still point to some falling gasoline prices in some areas, mainly the West Coast, oil prices haven't continued to shed as much value in the past week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
Prices in the past few years have bottomed out in June, we could see a similar situation play out this year," DeHaan said.
