drivers are paying a little less at the gas pump this week, according to AAA. The cost of a gallon of unleaded gas is off
two cents from a week ago, to $3.38. Spokeswoman Stephanie Dembowski credits
relative stability in the Middle East and in the Mid-Atlantic
states for the modest decrease.
“There haven’t been any major storms; the tensions in Syria have
eased this week,” Dembowski said. “So, just really not a lot going on to shift
prices in either direction.”
Tucson has the state’s
cheapest gas at $3.29-a-gallon, down a penny from last week, while gas costs
the most in Flagstaff,
where the average price of $3.60, is down three cents from last Friday.
