Gas prices held steady over the last week in Las Vegas echoing a similar trend nationally.
According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of regular unleaded held at an average of $3.67 a gallon, showing no change from the reported price a week before.
AAA reported Nevada's average price of regular unleaded at $3.71, which was only a 1-cent drop from the week before.
The average price of gas in Las Vegas was 5 cents lower a month ago and 30 cents lower a year ago.
Nationally, regular unleaded dropped only 4 cents over the last week to $3.63.
"After an impressive run that saw the national average begin to approach its springtime high, it appears prices have plateaued - at least for now," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Oil prices appear to be taking a breather, but with the peak of hurricane season approaching, an continued upward trajectory in gasoline prices is certainly possible, should we see a major storm take aim for the Gulf. Crude inventories have also declined four consecutive weeks, and large decreases in crude inventories in the near future may be cause for rising oil prices as well."
