Gas prices have been on the decline since last week, and while not everyone may be seeing $2.99 per gallon like some in Anderson, SC, many are breathing a sigh of relief at the downward decent.
The average price for a gallon of gas in Nebraska fell over six cents per gallon in the past week. The average price for a gallon of gas fell to $3.55 on Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com.
The price tracking website also found that the national average fell an average of five cents per gallon to $3.58.
Analyst Patrick DeHaan says, "Prices finally have dropped under their year ago
values, just in time for those last minute vacations before school starts."
rest of the summer will likely see prices flirting with where they stand today,
but more significant relief will arrive around mid-September, when prices
nationally could be 10-25 cents per gallon lower than where they are
today," DeHaan said.
