Nebraska Average Gas Price Falls Below Three Dollar Mark

Posted: Updated:

"Nearly 15 percent of all stations in the U.S. are now selling gasoline under the psychologically important $3/gal level," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

According to DeHaan, only 1 percent of U.S. gas stations were at prices that low around this time last year and to the disbelief of many Americans, he says prices could go even lower.

The average price for a gallon of gas in Nebraska fell just over 7 cents in the past week to a relieving $2.99, according to price-tracking site GasBuddy.com. That price is nearly 39 cents per gallon lower than this time last year and more than 27 cents per gallon lower than one month ago.

The national average remains above the three dollar threshold at $3.20 a gallon, but DeHaan says national prices could drop to as little as $3.05 by Christmas.

Some stations in Tulsa, Okla. are selling gasoline at $2.45 a gallon, and now only time will tell how low that number may go.
