Gas prices take another five-cent dip PDF Print E-mail

Average retail gasoline prices in Nebraska have fallen another 5.5 cents per gallon the past week, averaging $2.29 on Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 1,150 gas outlets in Nebraska.
That compares with the national average that has increased 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.22/gallon.
Including the change in Nebraska gas prices the past week, they were still 73.3 cents a gallon lower than the same day a year ago and 18.8 cents a gallon lower than last month.
The national average has decreased 10.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 70.5 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
“Motorists were hit with rising gas prices in 33 of the nation’s 50 states, catching up with recent increases in crude oil prices, while the Midwest, stung from increases from the previous week, saw relief,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.
“While we’ll see lower gasoline prices to return to much of the country in the weeks ahead, these types of isolated blips in gasoline prices do occasionally happen during times when crude oil prices are volatile,” he added.
With recent comments about raising interest rates that are propelling markets, DeHaan said drivers shouldn’t be surprised if they see occasional small gas prices increases followed by decreases, leading to a lower gasoline prices in time for the holidays.
