Drivers in southern Nevada continued to enjoy another drop in the price of gas over the last week.
AAA's Fuel Gauge Report showed a 2-cent drop in the average price of regular unleaded in the Las Vegas area.
According to AAA, the price Monday dropped to $3.43 a gallon. That price was also 20 cents cheaper than what drivers were paying a month ago.
In addition, drivers last year were paying an average of $3.70 a gallon, which is 27 cents more expensive than Monday's price.
Analysts, though, said many seasonal factors could come into play in whether gas prices move up or down.
"While the situation in Syria bears further monitoring, and hurricane season remains on the radar, we've still seen prices continue to hold level," Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy.com said. "In fact, the cumulative yearly average for a gallon of gas stands at $3.57/gal, compared to one year ago when it was $3.62/gal, so while motorists feel this has been a bad year for gas prices, it hasn't been as painful as 2012."
Currently, the average price of regular unleaded gas in Nevada was reported at $3.53 a gallon, which is a 1-cent drop from the week before.
