RENO, Nev. – Gas prices are down four cents this week across Nevada.

The average price for gas is $3.56 a gallon. That’s below the national average of $3.64 a gallon.

The Nevada price is $.25 lower than a year ago at this time, but we’re up nearly three cents from a month ago.

If your summer travel plans take you to the Great Lakes area, save up for gas money. Prices in that area have skyrocketed.

"In many cities in that region, new all time record high prices have been set," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "In areas that have featured skyrocketing gasoline prices amidst stable oil prices, refineries continue to be beset with shutdowns, maintenance, and other problems that have hampered production of gasoline and other products, leading to much higher prices. While these situations are difficult for motorists to digest, relief is on the way and will likely arrive in a few weeks," DeHaan said.
