Gas Prices Continue to Fall Nationwide

Posted: Updated:

According to GasBuddy.com, a group of websites that lets you post local prices, the average in Nevada is now $3.76 per gallon. That's a 3-cent drop over the last week. Compared to one year ago, we've seen a 19.6-cent drop and a 5.7-cent drop month-to-month. 

The Silver State's average is still higher than the national rate of $3.64 per gallon. That average has fallen 2.5 cents in the last week. From one year ago, the national average has fallen 21.9 cents and is down 9.5 cents in the last month.

A GasBuddy.com analyst says "average gasoline prices have continued to quietly move lower in the last week across much of the United States at a time of year when we historically are accustomed to seeing prices move higher." Analyst Patrick DeHaan went on to say, "as of late last week, all 50 states saw lower gasoline prices than the same date last year."
