Arizona Gas Prices Rise: Will Car Accidents Decrease?

By Breyer Law Offices on February 18, 2013

As Arizona car accident attorneys, we often notice that when there are fewer cars on the road, there are fewer accidents. While we don’t like that Arizona drivers have to pay higher gas costs, we are happy that there often are fewer injuries and deaths on our roadways during these times. According to a report in Fox10 News, officials at AAA Arizona say that prices are up $.14 this week, to $3.49 per gallon. The state is still below national average, which is $3.62. The national average is up about 7 cents.

What is the Cause for Higher Gas Prices?

Gas prices are on the rise because of refinery issues and because companies are switching to a summer gasoline blend, which causes rates to go up. While we often see gas prices fluctuate, it’s never easy to learn that you’ll be paying more.

Where Can You Find Cheaper Gas?

According to news reports, the cities with the lowest gas prices in the state include Tucson, which offers a rate of about $3.25 per gallon. The most expensive cities include Scottsdale at $3.60 per gallon. Some drivers, especially those who commute, choose to fill up in the less expensive areas in order to save some money. However, we urge drivers not to let their tanks fall below the half-way mark in case they are stranded. It also helps them avoid a possible break down because they ran out of gas.
