PHOENIX (AP) -- Gasoline prices around Arizona are higher again at the pumps this week.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.31 a gallon. That's an increase of nearly 12 cents from last week.

This week's national average is $2.34 per gallon, up by 7 cents from last week.

Triple-A analysts say "refinery mayhem" is the main factor behind rising gas prices right now and even higher prices may be seen in the coming weeks.

Tucson has Arizona's lowest average gasoline price at $2.17 a gallon and Scottsdale the highest at $2.41.

Idaho has the lowest average gas prices among states in the continental U.S. at $1.98 a gallon with California the highest at $3.09 a gallon.
