Gas prices continue to slowly climb upward across the nation, as well as in Nebraska.
The average price for a gallon of gas rose nearly 3 cents over the past week, hitting an average $3.17 on Sunday, according to GasBuddy. Nationally, the average price for a gallon of gas rose 1.6 cents to $3.28.
With the changes in the past week, Nebraska's average price remains well under where it was last year, by nearly 37 cents per gallon. However, Sunday's price was over 9 cents per gallon higher than just one month ago.
