If you've been feeling a lot of pain at the gas pump in the last week, there's a reason for that. The average price for gas in Las Vegas has increased 17.7 cents per gallon in the past week.
GasBuddy surveyed 649 gas stations in Las Vegas and found our increase has been considerably higher than the national uptick. Nationally, gas has increased 5.7 cents per gallon over the last seven days.
Still, gas in Las Vegas is 2 cents lower than it was at this time last year. It's 40.8 cents per gallon higher in Las Vegas than it was a month ago.
"If anything positive came about as a result of Winter Storm Nemo, it may be that the resulting 'demand destruction' seems to have flattened out the rate at which prices had been increasing in the Northeast and the Midwest too," said GasBuddy senior analyst Gregg Laskoski. "On the west coast, motorists are less fortunate. With western refineries producing at 75 percent capacity, California has seen its average price increase by 14 cents per gallon over the past week, doubling the rate of increase over the same period for the rest of the country."
