Now, Nevada once again has the second-highest gas prices in the nation behind California, where people are paying nearly $6.20 a gallon.
Triple A says the sudden price surge is mainly confined to the west coast, where several oil refineries in Washington and California recently shut down for maintenance.
It's a process that happens every three to five years during the fall when demand is usually low.
