PHOENIX (AP) -- Gasoline prices at the pump around Arizona are lower for the sixth consecutive week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is at $3.23 a gallon. That's almost three cents lower than last week.

This week's national average is at $3.27 per gallon, down by a nickel from the previous week.

Triple-A analysts say Arizona's average gasoline price now is at its lowest level since Feb. 1 and could fall even further in the coming weeks.

Peoria has Arizona's lowest average gasoline price at $3.11 a gallon while Flagstaff has the highest at $3.47.

Missouri has the lowest average gas prices in the continental U.S. at $2.91 a gallon with California having the highest at $3.70 a gallon.
