Wallet relief: Gas prices drop around the country

U.S. gas prices are at their lowest levels since 2009, according to GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices have continued their decline, falling below $1.80 per gallon which is low, but there's room for gas prices to continue to decline due to a weak seasonal demand.

According to GasBuddy.com's research, $1.79 a gallon, February's start at the pump is the cheapest February start since 2004. In the state of Nevada, we're averaging about $2.28 a gallon which is still pretty cheap, but nowhere near the middle states, averaging as low as $1.21 in some areas.

Other states still averaging over $2 a gallon:

Oregon ($2.01)

New York ($2.05)

Washington ($2.16)

Alaska ($2.39)

California ($2.58)

Hawaii ($2.63)

So what's causing the low gas prices?

Deadline approaches for KLAS-Cox deal

More than 300,000 households in southern Nevada that currently watch KLAS-TV Channel 8 will have to make other arrangements after Friday at midnight. That's when the KLAS signal will no longer be transmitted to all subscribers of Cox Cable.

Despite five months of negotiations with Cox Communications, no deal has been reached regarding what Cox should pay for re-transmitting Channel 8's programs, including next week's Super Bowl broadcast.

The cable company has gone on the offensive with statements about KLAS that KLAS General Manager Lisa Howfield calls "untrue and frankly offensive."

Howfield, who serves as general manager of Nevada's first and most honored television station, has heard just about enough trash talk from Cox Cable.

She says she would be remiss if she does not advise Channel 8 viewers who subscribe to Cox that they will lose the KLAS signal as of midnight Friday... Read More
