Gas Prices "Freeze" Along with Temperatures

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices dropped an average of 3 cents this past week across Nebraska, now averaging $3.13 per gallon.

The national average hasn't budged and continues to rest at $3.30 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices Sunday were 1.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 13.7 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. While the national average hasn't moved in the last week, it has increased by 5.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"While the cold weather is about the lock the country into a deep freeze, we're also seeing a bit of a freeze in the national average," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"For much of the week ahead, we may see the freeze at the pump continue, as oil prices have recently shed some of their gains from late December. January and February see some of weakest demand for gasoline in the year, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the average move slightly downward in the next couple weeks," DeHaan said.
