Gas prices are typical for this time of year.

Big Idea

  • Gas prices have eased slightly across the country
  • The lowest price in Arizona is $1.75/gallon; the highest is $3.39/gallon
  • More stations are falling back under $2 per gallon in the country
  • Elusive COVID-19 improvement may affect prices further
  •

Our gasoline appetite is, at least temporarily, reduced.

Tucson- $1.98/g, down 0.3 cents per gallon from last week's $1.98/g.

"Gas price trends continue to be typical for this time of year, easing slightly in most places as demand continues its slow seasonal drop, with potential enhancement from the recent surge in new coronavirus cases," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "More stations are falling back under $2 per gallon, in fact the highest amount of stations since May are now under that level, and I do believe that trend will continue at least for now as improvement in the coronavirus situation remains elusive. There may be minor disruption in price and localized supply challenges as Tropical Storm Zeta again takes aim for the Gulf Coast, but like we've seen with Laura, Sally and Delta, these issues have been very minor compared to a normal year due to the reduction in our gasoline appetite."

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.
