Average retail gasoline prices in Nebraska have risen 4.0
cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.63 per gallon as of Sunday,
according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 1,150 gas outlets in Nebraska. This
compares with the national average that has fallen 1 cent per gallon in the
last week, now averaging even with Nebraska's.
Prices Sunday were 0.6 cents per gallon higher than the
same day one year ago and reflect a 21.6 cent climb from one month ago.
The national average has increased 14.4 cents per gallon
during the last month and stands 3.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one
"Over the last week, the national average has
continued to see an ever so slow downward trend," said GasBuddy.com Senior
Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "But the downward trend got a shot in
the arm last weekend, as we saw the biggest daily drop since April."
"Further illustrating the downward trend, five-percent of
the country was over $4.00 per gal Friday. Last week, seven-percent of the
country was over $4.00 per gal," DeHaan said.
