AAA’s daily fuel price survey of 170 Nebraska communities shows that 95 cities across the state report fuel averages below $2 a gallon.

The last time Nebraska’s statewide fuel price average dropped below $2 a gallon was February 2015.

The lower fuel prices that motorists have enjoyed since the start of the year have provided consumers with substantial savings.  Based on an estimated average weekly savings of $10 per tankful, compared to fuel averages reported the previous year, many motorists have saved more than $500 in fuel costs this year.

The lowest prices in the nation can be found in Missouri and South Carolina.  Both states report fuel averages of $1.80 a gallon.  With crude oil prices trading below $40 a barrel due to a worldwide glut of supply, prices are expected to remain favorable in 2016.
