RENO- The average price of a gallon of petrol in Nevada continues to rise, gaining 3.5 cents in the last week.
According to GasBuddy, the average price of a gallon of gas in Nevada is now $4.87.
The ongoing surge comes as gas prices across the country continue to fall, decreasing roughly four cents in the same time period.
Gas prices in Nevada are over a $1 more on average than they were a year ago. On September 19, 2021, the average gas price in the Silver State was $3.93 per gallon.
“While some states continue to see gas prices trend higher, the majority have continued to decline,” said GasBuddy spokesperson Patrick De Haan of national gas prices.
“However, this week could change the downward trend. With some issues arising in Plains and Great Lakes states as the transition to winter gasoline begins, I think we have the best potential to see the weekly trend of falling prices snapped. West Coast states also continue to see increases as unexpected refinery issues continue to percolate, preventing a downward move. While gasoline could nudge higher, diesel prices should continue to ease after a much-needed jump in inventories last week.”
