Arizona, AZ, June 26- Average retail gasoline prices in Arizona have fallen 0.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.38/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,269 gas outlets in Arizona.

Experts say the lower gas prices are due to a drop in crude oil prices.

Using data from its users, GasBuddy said 64 percent of travelers said gas prices do not impact their decision to make road trips, while 17 percent are taking to the roads because they believe prices are low.

Florida's average is $2.19 a gallon, down from $2.25 a week ago, and elsewhere in the state, motorists are finding $2 a gallon gasoline, AAA said.
