East Valley fuel prices shed another 3 cents in the last week, according to AAA Arizona.
Drivers in Mesa, Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler and Queen Creek were paying an average $3.680 a gallon, 11 cents lower than a month ago.
The statewide average dropped more than 2 cents to $3.661 per gallon. Nationally, prices shed nearly a penny to $3.636 per gallon.
“While the state fuel average only fell a couple of cents this week, motorists are continuing to see month- and year-ago margins increase,” said Linda Gorman, director of communications and public affairs for AAA Arizona. “As far as drivers are concerned, any downward movement at the pump is movement in the right direction.”
