Gas prices in Las Vegas following national downward trend

Gasoline prices in the Las Vegas area are following the national downward trend.

GasBuddy.com reports the average retail price of a gallon of gas in the area is $3.27. That's according to a survey of 649 gas stations.

Gas prices in Las Vegas Sunday were about 2 cents a gallon lower than a week ago and about 65 cents higher than a year ago.

GasBuddy.com petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan says motorists are seeing the lowest average gasoline prices in a month. He says this comes as the "OPEC appears poised to adjust oil production levels" and the U.S. nears hitting 11 million barrels pumped a day.

The national average has fallen about 2 cents per gallon in the past week, to $2.89.
