LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gasoline prices in the Las Vegas area have increased over the past month. reports the average retail price of a gallon of gas in the area is $3.29. That’s according to a survey of 649 gas stations.

Gas prices in Las Vegas Sunday were about 67 cents a gallon higher than a year ago and about 5 cents higher than a month ago. petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan says gasoline prices will likely decline this month after peaking just before Memorial Day.
