Small Price Drops Continue at Nevada Gas Stations

Posted: Updated:

According to Gas Buddy, the average price in Reno for a gallon of gas has fallen 3.1-cents in the last week down to an average of $3.56 per gallon. That number puts us down 6.6-cents from the same time last year and down 26.8-cents in the last month. 

Nationally the average hasn't moved in the last week, staying at $3.43 per gallon. That average has seen an 11-cent drop year-over-year and a 14.1-cent drop month-to-month. 

GasBuddy.com Senior Analyst Patrick DeHaan said "Thanksgiving Day 2012 featured the highest ever daily average for the holiday, beating out 2011 by over 10-cents per gallon. The national average may continue to moderate slightly by Christmas, but I'm not expecting significant decreases or increases in the national average in the short term at this point. There are several factors putting both upward pressure and downward pressure on oil and gasoline, and I expect some fluctuation in prices, but overall, there will likely not be much change between today and Christmas," DeHaan said.
