Arizona Gas Prices Rise 1.2¢ Featured

Arizona gas prices overall have gone up, but in Phoenix, the prices have dropped slightly.

Big Idea

  • Gas prices are rising across the country, national average has risen 4.0¢ per gallon
  • The lowest price in Arizona is $1.71/gallon; the highest is $3.09/gallon
  • Gas prices have reached their highest post-coronavirus level, thanks to Hurricane Laura
  • There is a potential for a downward momentum in a few weeks

 

More decreases are coming to gas prices once Labor Day is over.

"Gas prices have reached their highest post-coronavirus level as Hurricane Laura caused Gulf Coast refineries to shut, limiting production as gasoline demand edged higher," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "The rebound in demand comes with just a week left in the summer driving season and isn't expected to continue once the driving season wraps up, but while some may see prices tick higher over the next few days, more decreases are coming to gas prices once Labor Day is over as demand will likely move lower. In addition, the switch back to cheaper winter gasoline will happen in a few weeks, giving more potential downward momentum for prices."

GasBuddy is the authoritative voice for gas prices and the only source for station-level data spanning nearly two decades. Unlike AAA's once daily survey covering credit card transactions at 100,000 stations and the Lundberg Survey, updated once every two weeks based on 7,000 gas stations, GasBuddy's survey updates 288 times every day from the most diverse list of sources covering nearly 150,000 stations nationwide, the most comprehensive and up-to-date in the country.
