Nebraska Gas Prices See Slight Drop While National Average Remains Frozen

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices are heading back down after seeing rises around the holidays. says the average price in Nebraska fell 5 cents over the past week to $3.07 per gallon.

The national average saw little change, dropping only .4 cents per gallon over the past week to $3.29 a gallon. Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan say he expects prices to remain similarly unchanged this week.

"As expected, the deep freeze during the last week impacted more than just the air temperature, but also kept a grip on gasoline prices," DeHaan said. He added that it would take a "monumental ice breaker" to break the tight grip on prices generally seen in January and February when demand slows way down.

With last week's changes, Sunday's average in Nebraska was nearly two cents per gallon lower than the same day last year, but remained over eight cents per gallon higher than one month ago.
