Gasoline prices continued their upward spiral in Nevada over the past month, keeping pace with soaring oil costs.
Reno's average of $3.30 a gallon is up 18 cents over the month and just a penny shy of the $3.31 record set in June.
In southern Nevada, triple-A of Nevada says the $3.05 in Las Vegas was up 24 cents since mid-October, but well shy of June's $3.21.
Statewide, a gallon of regular unleaded was going for $3.15, an increase of 23 cents in a month and up 66 cents in the past year.
Filling up in Nevada cost 4 cents more than the national average, which jumped 35 cents.
At Nevada pumps, Las Vegas remained the bargain, followed by Elko at $3.17 - up a quarter - and Carson City at $3.24, marking a 24-cent increase.
Nationally, the best price found by triple-A is $2.86 in St. Louis. Tahoe City, California again tops the list for the contiguous states at $3.60 a gallon.
