Despite a national increase, gas prices in Omaha are on the way down according to analysts at GasBuddy.com.

Average retail prices in Omaha fell 4.2 cents per gallon over the past week to $3.53/gallon. That's compared to a national average of $3.65/gallon.

The average local prices are 0.7 cents lower than they were a year ago, but 19.8 cents higher than they were just a month ago. That's compared to the national average, which is 14 cents higher than it was a a year ago and 15 cents higher than they were last month.

"After an impressive run that saw the national average begin to approach its springtime high, it appears prices have plateaued for not," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

He says wholesale oil prices are taking a breather, but hurricane season worries will send prices up. However, it looks like Omaha will miss those worries too. Analysts say gas prices here in the metro are on a downward trend.
