Arizona gas prices increase for first time in 10 weeks

PHOENIX - A 10-week decline is Arizona gas prices has finally come to an end, according to an American Automobile Association report.

The statewide average price for a gallon of gas increased by just more than 1 cent after it had been falling for 10 straight weeks, AAA reported.

Nationally, gas prices increased by about 5 cents.

AAA attributes the price hike to tight supplies, planned and unplanned refinery maintenance and an increase in whole sale prices. Six states saw their gas prices shoot up by 20 cents.

Tucson currently has the lowest gas prices in the state, with an average price of $3.18. Flagstaff's gas is the most expensive, costing $3.68 per gallon.
