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?

More charges filed in North Las Vegas kidnap-child sex case

Dozens more charges have been filed against a North Las Vegas man accused of kidnapping and keeping a 14-year-old Arizona girl as his sex slave for about a month.

A revised complaint brings to 83 the number of charges against 26-year-old Jimmy Carter Kim. It stems from allegations involving three more alleged victims, including two under age 16.

Kim is jailed on $1.5 million bail pending a preliminary hearing March 1 on charges also including lewdness, attempted sexual assault, sexual battery and use of a minor in producing pornography. A deputy Clark County public defender representing Lee didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.

The case came to light after the 14-year-old girl, from Bullhead City, Arizona, told police she'd been held captive and raped repeatedly before escaping from Kim's home... Read More

Deadly stretch of highway getting improvements

A stretch of the 215 in the northern part of the Las Vegas valley is proving to be deadly.

In the last six months, there have been at least three deadly crashes on the Beltway, near Aliante Parkway in North Las Vegas.

The latest wreck happened Monday evening killing two drivers.

Construction is underway to prevent more head-on collisions including placing a barrier separating traffic in both directions.

But some drivers say the road project cannot be completed soon enough.

"I don't feel 100 percent safe," said Adriel Ross.

She drives along the 215 Beltway, near Aliante Parkway daily.

It's the same place where in the past six months four people have died in three separate wrong-way collisions.

Ross witnessed a crash last June when a motorcyclist was killed.

"It was tough to watch," she said.
