PHOENIX (AP) -- Gasoline prices around Arizona keep going down at the pumps.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Wednesday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.27 a gallon. That's more than 17 cents lower than last week.

This week's national average is $2.35 per gallon, down by more than 15 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say prices could fall even further in the coming weeks, barring unforeseen circumstances.

The East Valley (Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Queen Creek and Ahwatukee) has Arizona's lowest average gasoline price at $2.10 a gallon and Flagstaff the highest at $2.63.

Missouri has the lowest average gas prices among states in the continental U.S. at $2.01 a gallon with New York the highest at $2.86 a gallon.
