Gas prices fall again

RENO ” Gasoline prices in Nevada continue to plunge and are at their lowest level in more than four years, AAA reported Tuesday.

“We know there is a bottom down there, we’re just not sure where it is at this point,” Michael Geeser, spokesman for AAA Nevada, said in a written statement.

The auto club, which tracks monthly gas prices nationwide, said the statewide average in Nevada for a gallon of self-serve unleaded dropped 60 cents from November to $1.84.

Nevada’s average price hasn’t been this low since February 2004, Geeser said.

The rapid decline is in stark contrast to this summer, when the statewide average skyrocketed to a record $4.27 a gallon on June 20.

Nationally, the average price fell 52 cents to $1.70, AAA said.
