U.S. Gas Prices Plummet
Gas prices across Arizona continue to drop.
AAA Arizona spokesperson Aldo Vazquez says because fewer people are driving, prices will continue to drop.
“In Arizona, the average for a gallon of gasoline is $2.32. That’s 10 cents cheaper than it was last week and a 58 cent drop from last year when we were paying about $2.90,” Vazquez said.
The national average for a gallon is even lower at $1.90.
Vazquez says pump prices are at their lowest point since the 1990s.
OPEC nations and Russia have been meeting this week to agree on a production cut to shore up the price per barrel.
