How gas prices have changed in Arizona


(Stacker) – Gasoline prices have stalled over the past week on average across the country and remain highest in Western and Northeastern states as well as in Illinois, where taxes on fuel are exceptionally high.

The plateau in prices comes after several months of price increases, impacting the sentiment of Americans being hit with higher costs at the pump and elsewhere.

Consumer confidence fell in April as Americans have endured continued price increases for gas and food, even as the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates high in an effort to tamp down inflation.

AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross believes consumers may not see price increases at the pump again until Memorial Day weekend gets closer.

“The cost of a barrel of oil is nearly $10 less than two weeks ago, as oil prices have fallen into the upper $70s,” Gross said in a statement Thursday. “This may keep pump prices somewhat flat for the immediate future.”
