Nevada, local gas prices hold steady

Nevada Appeal staff report

Both in Nevada and Carson City, gasoline prices basically were steady in comparison with a week earlier, a statewide survey and check of local outlets showed Monday.

Nationally, meanwhile, the pump price for gasoline dropped a half penny, according to GasBuddy.com, a motor fuels price monitoring website.

Nationally, the price when the survey ended Sunday was $1.99 per gallon, a drop of a half cent from a week ago, a nickel when compared with a month earlier and almost 20 cents lower than a year earlier, the website reported.

In Nevada, the site’s survey of 1,130 outlets showed gasoline averaging $2.51 per gallon, steady with a week earlier, but 0.7 cents per gallon higher than a month earlier and 6.9 cents a gallon lower than a year earlier.

In Carson City, meanwhile, the lowest outlets on Monday checked in at $2.09 per gallon. Of the 25 outlets checked, the single highest again was at $2.59 a gallon.

There was a slight difference in that there were seven at the lowest price a week earlier but just three this Monday.
