Las Vegas gas prices hold steady

Posted: Updated:

The average price of gas held relatively steady in the Las Vegas area over the last week, according to auto club AAA.

AAA's Fuel Gauge Report showed the average price of regular unleaded at $3.47 a gallon on Monday.

The price a week ago was at $3.46 a gallon. The gas price average was $3.57 a gallon one month ago and $3.90 at this point last year, AAA said.

Monday's price follows a steadiness in the national average, which was reported at $3.65 a gallon on Monday.

"The last seven days have delivered some shocks at the pump for motorists in the nation's Midwest," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I don't believe I've ever seen gasoline prices in the Midwest surpass California - areas of Nebraska, Minnesota, Oklahoma, North and South Dakota, and Kansas - have done that. Gas price records in these areas aren't being quietly replaced, they're being blown out of the water. I don't believe I've ever seen such crazy trends in gasoline prices occur all at one - prices spiking in one area, falling in another, and holding steady in others. What we're seeing today is certainly rare."
