National averages for gas prices
While the national averages for gas prices are reaching their highest level in nine years, Carson Country prices are down slightly.
Statewide, drivers pay an average of $1.46 per gallon while the Carson City average is close to $1.40. Since September, local gas prices have fallen 13 cents.
But state and local averages are still significantly higher than the national average of $1.29, up a penny from last month. This represents the highest national average since 1990 when consumers paid $1.37 a month during the Gulf War.
