Gas prices have been another big focus in our recovering economy. Right now, GasBuddy.com says the average price in Nevada is $3.15 a gallon.
Gas prices are about 26 cents lower than they were at this time last year, but Gas Buddy says these low prices will not stick around long.
According to a new report released by Gas Buddy on Tuesday, prices will start climbing nationally in March to about $3.67 a gallon. According to the same report, prices at the pump will really spike in April to just under $4. In the summer, prices will remain relatively high, hovering above $3.60 a gallon, before falling slightly by next winter.

"It probably will go up eventually," said Michael Berg of Reno. "I'm suspecting probably this summer."
