AZ Gas Prices Drop to $4/g on Average Featured

Don’t be fooled: Prices are still 92¢ higher than a year ago, and $1.62 higher than two years ago

Big Idea

  • Despite the Biden Administration’s claims, you are still paying more for gas, you just aren’t paying the most ever for gas
  • The pace of declines is slowing down
  • Diesel is below $5/g for the first time since March
  • A 76 Station on Buckeye Road is at $3.45/g, but reports are that they ran out
  •


In the Prescott area, nothing is lower than $3.99

Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Arizona- $4.00/g, down 9.2 cents per gallon from last week's $4.09/g.
Las Vegas- $4.85/g, down 2.1 cents per gallon from last week's $4.87/g.
Tucson- $3.77/g, down 7.7 cents per gallon from last week's $3.84/g. 


“While some areas saw gas prices rise slightly last week, the national average saw yet another weekly decline, extending the streak to ten straight weeks. The pace of declines is certainly slowing down as oil prices have bounced up slightly, but the West Coast and Northeastern U.S. are areas that still may see gas prices decline, while the South and Midwest see the drop fade and potentially slight increases," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. "In addition to falling gasoline prices, the average price of diesel has fallen below $5 per gallon for the first time since March, likely helping to cool off aggressive inflation numbers. Thus far, Mother Nature has spared us from disruptions from hurricanes, but that remains a wildcard as we head into the peak of hurricane season."
