Las Vegas gas prices continue to climb

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas motorists continue to see gas prices shoot upward despite a drop nationally.

According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of gas on Monday was reported about five cents higher than the price a week ago. The average price of gas on Monday is at $3.53 a gallon.

The average price of gas a month ago was $3.47.

Despite the rise in prices, the average price of gas was 14 cents a gallon more a year ago. Nationally, the average Monday is 2 cents lower than the price a week ago. The average price of gas sits at $3.61 a gallon.

"The national average has continued its downward decline in the last week, likely being helped by relief in the Great Lakes, a region that had been plagued with refining issues that have seemingly been resolved," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "While the national average stands higher than it did a year ago, we likely will see the average decline, and for motorists in the Great Lakes, the downward trend should mean well-needed relief at the pump. Areas of California may see prices rising slightly in the days ahead, but at this time we aren't seeing any short-term price spikes across the United States."
