Nevada Gas Prices Continue to Fall

Gasoline prices in Nevada fell another 21 cents in the past month to $2.84, according to the latest survey by AAA.

AAA Nevada on Tuesday said the decline since July follows a 19 cent drop the previous month.

"It was only three months ago when Nevadans were paying well over $3 a gallon," said Michael Geeser, spokesman for AAA Nevada. "But a 40-cent decrease over the past eight weeks is a substantial drop and it appears likely prices will keep falling in the near future."

The biggest drop in Nevada was reported in Carson City, where prices fell 27 cents to $2.76.

Prices fell a quarter in Reno to $2.83, and 20 cents in Las Vegas to $2.76.

The most expensive gas in the state was in Elko at $3.02. That's still 25 cents cheaper than last month.

Nationally, the average price fell 27 cents to $2.77.
