What’s happening with Nevada gas prices?

Chaos in the financial markets and fears of a recession may have kept gas prices from jumping this past week, even as Americans embark on spring travel plans.

A gallon of gas was $3.44 on average, according to AAA gas price data. Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Nevada. Gas prices are as of March 24.

As long as oil prices remain reduced as they are today, prices at the pump could remain suppressed for drivers, according to AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross. Colorado, Delaware, Ohio, Michigan, and Nevada all saw the largest weekly decreases in retail gasoline prices.
