Nevada gasoline prices steady but vulnerable to spikes

Nevada gas prices in July remained steady from the previous month but were still higher than the national average, according to AAA Nevada’s monthly gas survey released today.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas across the state was $3.66, 22 cents higher than the national average, AAA said in a news release.

The average price in Las Vegas was $3.60 a gallon, up two cents from June.

But gas prices have the potential to increase in the coming weeks because of late-summer hurricanes and accompanying refinery problems, AAA Northern California spokeswoman Cynthia Harris said in a statement.

“These types of issues can disrupt production, distribution and gasoline supply at a time when many Americans are filling up their tanks for summer travel,” she said.

Of the metro areas tracked by AAA, Wailuki, Hawaii, had the highest average price per gallon at $4.57.
