AAA Nebraska Fuel Price Index

AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report, posted at www.fuelgaugereport.com, features a color coded United States map showing the ten states with the highest fuel price averages in bright red. For the past few weeks, Nebraska’s fuel prices were among the highest in the nation due to regional refinery issues that compromised Midwest supply levels. As of today, Nebraska is out of the top ten category with prices down 14 cents from a week ago when unleaded fuel across the state averaged $4.02 a gallon. The downward slide is expected to continue as supply concerns diminish. Currently, Nebraska’s fuel price average is $3.88 a gallon, 27 cents higher than the national average of $3.61 a gallon for unleaded fuel. Ethanol blends are typically 10-12 cents less per gallon. In the days leading up to Memorial Day, motorists in nine states, including Nebraska, paid an average of more than $4 per gallon. The price of gasoline continues to vary dramatically across the country with the lowest gasoline prices found in the Southeast region of the U.S. The highest fuel averages in the continental U.S. are reported primarily in the upper Midwest region and Pacific Coast states.
