Gas Prices Reach 1,000 Days Over $3.00
Posted: 20 September, 2013
UNDATED (NRN) - America reached a dubious record this week for having gasoline prices of at least three-dollars a gallon for one-thousand straight days.
Gail Weinholzer, spokeswoman for AAA-Nebraska, says unless we fall into a recession again, we’ll likely have prices that high for another thousand days — or more. The last time Nebraska had gas prices averaging under three-bucks a gallon was December 12th of 2010. Weinholzer says it’s possible we may not see pump prices that low again. Nebraska’s current average price for gasoline is $3.59 a gallon, that’s ten-cents higher than the national average.
