Drivers in the Omaha metro are paying nearly three cents more per gallon of gasoline than they were a week ago.
According tot he price watching website, OmahaGasPrices.com, the average retail price Sunday was $3.74/gallon, which is a 2.8 cent increase.
Nationally, the average price is $3.77/gallon.
"The national average has again seen a decrease in the last week, has California joins much of the rest of the United States in seeing lower prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
"Even though there hasn't been a massive decline in California retail prices, the fact that prices have stopped rising there has helped tip the national average lower. In the week ahead, we could continue to see declines as wholesale prices fell lower late last week, meaning gas stations have additional room to drop their prices," DeHaan said.
Prices, locally, were nearly 25-cents higher Sunday than they were the same day a year ago. The per gallon cost is more than 14-cents higher than a month ago.
