In the past week, the average price for a gallon of gas in Las Vegas has fallen 2.7 cents to $3.78 per gallon, according to

Nationally, the cost of gas has fallen 1.9 cents in the past week to an average of $3.65 per gallon.

Las Vegas gas prices are 9.8 cents per gallon lower than this time a year ago and 12.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

"The national average has seemingly found some relative stability in the last week," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "And while the national average hasn't seen much movement, some areas of the country have seen volatility continue, mainly in the Great Lakes states where prices may again be poised to rise in the next couple of days as wholesale prices reverberate as refineries continue their maintenance schedules and the progressive switch over to summer gasoline continues."
