Gas prices hold steady in Las Vegas

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices remained relatively stagnant in the Las Vegas-area over the last seven days.

According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of regular unleaded was $3.70 a gallon on Monday. That's compared to the price of $3.71 on the previous week.

A year ago, the average price of gas was $3.59 a gallon, AAA reported. The price was $3.67 a month ago.

Nationally, the average price of gas was at $3.78 on Monday, which was a two-cent drop from the week before.

One expert said the stagnant price of gas was unusual especially during a time of year when a drop is expected.

"In the last few years, we've typically seen a seasonal downward trend at the gas pump as the cooler temperatures invade," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "We just haven't seen any sort of real decline at the pump yet this autumn. This year has seen one of the warmest ever- temperatures and gasoline prices alike. High temperatures have been blamed on global warming, perhaps we're seeing a long term "pump warming" equivalent at retail pumps. Either way, the small drop in gasoline prices isn't to the satisfaction of many, and I don't see enough relief to satisfy the majority of American motorists any time soon."
