Gas prices rose once again this holiday weekend. According to NevadaGasPrices.com the price in the Silver State climbed 5.9-cents in the last week to an average of $3.80 per gallon.
That nearly 6-cent climb puts us 12.4-cents higher than the average one year ago and 31.3-cents higher than just one month ago.
The average announced Tuesday also puts Nevada right in line with the national average of $3.80 a gallon. Nationally prices have increased 1.4-cents per gallon in the last week. That number is up almost 13-cents from one year ago and up more than 20-cents in the last month.
Gas price analysts say they expect gas prices to fall now that the summer driving season is over.
"You may not see immediate loss in the short term, but we'll likely see some loss in the longer term, say the next several weeks, as factors align in motorists favor- specifically as Isaac has exited without much ado, demand to see seasonal decline, and with cheaper to produce winter-spec higher RVP gasoline coming, there's light at the end of the tunnel," GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said.
