Average retail gasoline prices in Lincoln have fallen 17.6 cents per
gallon in the past week, averaging $3.55/g Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 9.0 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.67/g, according to gasoline price website

Including the change in gas prices in Lincoln during the past week, prices Sunday were 5.7 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 31.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 14.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 20.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"Only one other time in the last few years have we seen the national average drop so significantly in the course of just a week, and that other time was in May 2011," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Looking back at our data, we only see that prices dropped considerably more in autumn 2008 when the economy slipped into a recession. Given the circumstances with this latest weekly decrease that it has nothing to do with recession is significant," DeHaan said.
