Gasoline prices in Arizona are down again this week but remain above the $3 entering the Christmas holiday for the first time in years.

Officials with Triple-A Arizona said Thursday that the average price around the state for unleaded regular gasoline is $3.15 a gallon at the pumps. That's down by more than a penny from last week.

This week's national average is $3.21 per gallon, down by more than 4 cents from last week.

New Mexico has the lowest average gas prices in the continental U.S. at $2.96 a gallon with California having the highest at $3.53 a gallon.
