Nebraska's Fuel Price Average Among the Highest in the Country
Today’s color coded map on AAA’s Fuel Gauge website shows that Nebraska is back in the undesirable “red zone” indicating that its statewide average is among the top ten highest in the nation. Iowa is the only other Midwest state in this category. Nebraska’s average fuel price is currently $1.89 a gallon, eight cents higher than the national average. Iowa’s average is eleven cents higher than the national average at $1.92. Although Nebraska’s statewide average is up twenty cents since last month, fuel costs are 55 cents below retail pump prices reported last year and $1.60 a gallon lower than prices reported on March 8, 2014. AAA says that rising crude oil prices and tighter regional supplies of processed fuel due to refinery issues are contributing to the recent price spike at the retail level.
