Nevada has second-highest gas prices in US
Gas prices in Nevada have reached the second highest in the country, with AAA putting Tuesday's average for regular gas at $5.52 a gallon.
That’s just above third place Hawaii, but not quite as a high at first place California, where the average is $6.37 a gallon.
The national average is $4.91.
AAA said the cost of a barrel of oil is nearing $120, almost double from last August, as increased oil demand outpaces the tight global supply.
At the same time, demand for gasoline rose last week with a robust Memorial Day weekend of travel.
