Gas prices drop 4 cents in Las Vegas

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Gas pumps around Las Vegas continued their price drops as temperatures, too, fall for the season.

According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the southern Nevada metropolis averaged $3.54 a gallon for regular unleaded. That was a four-cent drop from the price a week ago.

A month ago, drivers in Las Vegas paid an average of $3.79 a gallon for regular unleaded, according to the auto club.

A year ago, gas cost an average of $3.48 a gallon.

"While Thanksgiving 2012 is now behind us, the stigma of record high gasoline prices is not," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Thanksgiving Day 2012 featured the highest ever daily average for the holiday, beating out 2011 by over 10-cents per gallon. The national average may continue to moderate slightly by Christmas, but I'm not expecting significant decreases or increases in the national average in the short term at this point. There are several factors putting both upward pressure and downward pressure on oil and gasoline, and I expect some fluctuation in prices, but overall, there will likely not be much change between today and Christmas."
