Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $2.17 per gallon, unchanged from last week.
This week's national average is $2.26 per gallon, down by nearly 2 cents from last week.

Ohio has the lowest average gas price among states in the continental U.S. at $2.02 a gallon and California the highest at $2.83.
