The average price of gas in Nebraska has fallen back down to $3 per gallon, after a few weeks hovering just over the distinctive price.
According to NebraskaGasPrices.com, the average price for a gallon of gas fell just over 3 cents in the past week to reach the three-dollar mark. In comparison, the national average remained virtually unchanged at $3.24 per gallon.
Gregg Laskoski, a senior
petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, says the cold, snowy weather conditions being felt across much of the United States is leading to a decline in the consumer demand, which usually results in nominal decreases in gas prices.
"That may be what lies ahead this
week," said Laskoski.
Prices in Nebraska are well below where they were at last year, down more than 29 cents per gallon. However, prices are right around where they were at one month ago, up .9 cents per gallon, according to GasBuddy.
Meanwhile, the national
average has increased 3.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands
10.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
