Expect gas prices to continue to fall going into the New Year.
AAA Nevada spokesman Sergio Avila said gas prices are averaging $2.98 a gallon in Clark County — a steep decline from the $3.24 a gallon on average a month ago.
Prices climbed in October after several refineries in California had some unplanned maintenance issues.
“We actually get a lot of our gas from California,” Avila said. “What happens there does impact our supply quite a bit.”
Since then the refineries have gotten back on track and supply in Clark County is “looking good” as holiday season travel winds down, he said.
