While gas prices across Nebraska rose a penny in August, it’s been 16 years since motorists paid a lower average price for the month.

Today’s statewide average stands at $2.13 while the national average is $2.23. On this day one year ago, Nebraska motorists where paying $2.45, while nationally the average stood at $2.58.

The average price paid for a gallon of regular gas in Nebraska during August was $2.12. Last year the monthly average was $2.52. The last time the August average was below $2.12 was in 2004 when the average was $1.89.

Gasoline demand continues to increase but still remains below last year’s level. At the same time, gasoline supplies remain well above average for this time of year. As the summer travel season comes to a close, the trend for prices is lower.
