When it comes to superlatives Nevada can add another of the negative variety. The state has the second highest gasoline prices in the nation, topped only by California, of course, according to a website called GasBuddy.
Nevada is averaging $2.877 a gallon, while California weighs in at $3.149, even though their state and local gasoline tax is less than a nickel higher. Meanwhile, South Carolinians are paying only $2.047, the lowest in the nation.
Fortunately Clark County is averaging $2.666, while Washoe is pushing up the average with prices reaching $3.087.
