PHOENIX - National gas prices went up almost four cents last week, averaging $3.41 per gallon, but Phoenix saw prices drop almost five cents to a $3.31 per gallon average.
According to GasBuddy.com, gas prices in Phoenix are 29.7 cents lower than they were a month ago, but remain the same as one year ago today.
GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan said in a news release that although prices dropped over the past month, prices are starting to rise again.
“While I don't necessarily believe that the recent uptick in crude prices will stick, I also don't see prices falling considerably lower until after the conclusion of the summer driving season, when demand declines, and more expensive blends are phased out,” DeHaan said.
