The year is nearly over and once again, experts are predicting the national average price for a gallon of gas to be higher than the year before.

According to AAA, this will be the fifth consecutive January 1 that Americans have paid more at the pump than the year before. To ring in 2013, Americans saw a 1 cent increase over the average price of gas on Jan. 1, 2012, and this year looks to mimic that change as we hover only slightly over last year's $3.29 average.

The national average as of Monday was $3.31 per gallon, following an 11 day rise. Nebraska fell in the top 10 list of states seeing the largest increases over the past two-weeks.

With a 16 cent increase over the past two weeks, Nebraska ranks seventh among states with the largest increase. Nebraska's average price for a gallon of gas was at $3.19 on Monday.

Despite these increases, gas prices in 2013 averaged less than in 2012 and experts are anticipating prices in 2014 to dip slightly lower, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
