The end of the summer driving season and stable crude oil prices have meant a big drop of prices at the gas pumps in Nevada, AAA said.
The statewide average for a gallon of self-serve unleaded plunged 32 cents from September to $2.64, according to AAA-Nevada.
"Oil supplies appear to be strong, and prices should continue to move lower through October," said AAA spokesman Michael Geeser.
Prices in Nevada, however, are the highest in the continental United States. Nationally, the average price fell 35 cents to $2.54.
The cheapest gas in the state is found in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas, where the price fell to $2.54.
Prices in Reno dropped 28 cents from September to $2.72, and 30 cents in Sparks to $2.70.
The most expensive gas in Nevada is in Elko, where the price
fell a quarter to $2.85.
