Gas prices continue to fall in the state and around the country. Arizona is averaging at about $4.37 per gallon. 

That’s down about 20 cents from a week ago. Though AAA spokesperson Aldo Vazquez says that the trend could end as people change driving habits. 

“We know that most Americans have made significant changes in their driving habits to cope with high gas prices. But with gas below $4 a gallon at nearly half the gas stations around the country, it’s possible gas demand could rise," Vazquez said. 

He added that Mohave has the highest gas price averages and Pima county has the lowest.
