AAA Arizona is
predicting continued price increases as we suffer through another week of being
pinched at the pump. With a statewide average price of $2.29 a gallon, AAA Spokeswoman
Michelle Donati says drivers are complaining but we need to remember that it
has been much worse, with gas prices nearing the $4.00 mark this time a year ago. 

blames the cold and refinery issues for most of the increase in gas prices,   Donati says that, across Arizona, Scottsdale
drivers are paying the most right now at $2.40 per gallon while drivers in Tucson
are paying the least at $2.16.
