EXPLAINED: Why are gas prices cheaper in some parts of Southern Arizona?
By Jeff Rosenfield,
You have probably noticed by now, gas is cheaper in Sierra Vista & Douglas than it is in Tucson.
According to AAA, the refinery in El Paso, TX that supplies much of Southern Arizona's gas is back online, after months of maintenance.
Julian Paredes, a AAA spokesperson, said that means gas supplies will soon return to normal, but because eastern counties are closer, they will see lower prices first. Pima County will also take longer because of its larger infrastructure.
