PHOENIX (AP) - Gasoline prices around Arizona remain under $2 a gallon this week.
Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average statewide price for unleaded regular gasoline is $1.98 a gallon.
That's a decrease of half a cent from last week and marks Arizona's lowest gasoline average at the start of a new year since 2009.
