Lincoln, Neb. - While drivers in 30 states are paying a year-over-year premium for fuel costs, consumers in a handful of states including Nebraska are experiencing dramatic savings at the pump compared to prices of a year ago, says AAA. 

Minnesota’s fuel average is down 78 cents a gallon, North Dakota 67 cents, and Nebraska and Iowa are down 57 cents a gallon compared to prices reported in May 2013. Oklahoma and Kansas prices are down, as well, 50 and 49 cents a gallon.  These lofty price variances are due to Midwestern refinery issues that occurred last year, which caused regional price spikes of 50 cents or more per gallon prior to the Memorial Day holiday period.  In some Nebraska communities, fuel prices climbed to new record highs. 

In Omaha, new record highs were set on May 20, 2013, when unleaded climbed to $4.09 cents a gallon.  In Columbus, a new record was set on May 23, 2013, when unleaded soared to $4.09 a gallon.  At that time, the state average for unleaded fuel was $4.06 a gallon for regular unleaded fuel.   Today, Nebraskans are paying an average of $3.49 for unleaded fuel.  For the latest information on fuel prices, visit fuelgaugereport.com.   More than 120,000 fuel outlets are surveyed daily on AAA’s Fuel Gauge site.
