Gas Prices Continue to Rise in Nebraska

Gasoline prices in Nebraska rose nearly 20-cents a gallon during July and one industry analyst says it’s a toss-up for what may happen to pump prices in August. Gail Weinholzer, spokeswoman for Triple-A-Nebraska, says an increase in demand usually means a spike in prices and August is a busy month for travel.

The average price for a gallon of unleaded gas in Nebraska is three-63, the same as the national average. The statewide average price a month ago was three-44.
