PHOENIX (AP) — After 17 weeks of falling prices, Arizona motorists are paying more at the pump for the second consecutive week.

Officials with AAA Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $3.414 a gallon. That’s up by nearly 10 cents from last week.

This week’s national average is $3.71 per gallon, an increase of almost a nickel from last week.

Tucson has the lowest average gasoline price in Arizona at $3.29 a gallon while Flagstaff has the highest at $3.58.

South Carolina has the lowest average gas prices in the continental U.S. at $3.411 a gallon with California having the highest at $4.11 a gallon.
