Nevada Gas Prices Still Going Up

AAA Nevada says Nevada gas prices are continuing an upward climb, but the rate of increase has eased a bit.

The statewide average for a gallon of regular, self-serve unleaded rose to $4.25 in July, up 10 cents from the previous month. But AAA notes the increase is modest compared to the 43-cent spike in June.

In Las Vegas, the average price rose 11 cents in July to $4.23. The price in Reno increased 4 cents to $4.16. Elko saw the largest increase in the state, where the price shot up 22 cents to $4.49.

Nationally, gas prices average $4.11, up 7 cents from a month ago.
