Gas Prices Remain on the Rise

Posted: Updated:

Drivers continue to pay more at the pump as gas prices remain on the rise.

According to, the average price for a gallon of gas in Nebraska rose 5 cents over the past week to $3.58. Nebraska's average remains just under the national average, which on Sunday was $3.59 a gallon after rising 3.4 cents.

Including the change in gas prices in Nebraska during the past week, prices Sunday were 18.5 cents per gallon higher than one year ago and are 8.4 cents per gallon higher than this time last month. Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan says the national average has reached its highest point so far this year.

"As we get very near the final shift to summer spec gasoline, we're seeing prices continue to creep higher in many communities across the country," DeHaan said. He adds that GasBuddy is expecting prices nationally from April to September to average out to just over $3.50 a gallon.
