OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Gas prices in Omaha have fallen 11.5 cents in the past week, averaging at $2.50 per gallon Monday, according to a daily survey by Gas Buddy.

The cheapest gas station in Omaha is priced at $2.24/g Monday while the most expensive is nearly $3/g.

"For the sixth straight week, gasoline prices have declined nationally, a feat not often seen heading into the prime of summer driving season. It was a perfect week with every state seeing average gas prices decline versus last Sunday as stations continued to pass along the lower replacement cost as oil prices remain under considerable selling pressure, even after last week's attack on two oil tankers which caused not much more than the oil market to blink," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

This is how gas prices in Omaha compare over the last decade, according to Gas Buddy:
