(Neb.)-Fuel Prices Have Fallen 70 Cents A Gallon Since September

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 01/02/2013 10:53 AM

(REGIONAL)-According to AAA Nebraska, pump prices across Nebraska spiked last September to $3.90 a gallon for unleaded fuel largely due to lost oil production along the GulfCoast as a result of Hurricane Isaac. Pump prices have come down across the state to more favorable prices with motorists paying an average of $3.18 a gallon for unleaded. Fuel with 10 percent Ethanol can typically be found for 10 to 12 cents less per gallon. The lowest prices in the state were reported in the Panhandle, where unleaded averages less than $3 a gallon. Building U.S. oil inventories, coupled with a lower demand for motor fuels due to improved fuel economy standards, are cited as reasons for the lower pump prices.
