Gas prices are expected to remain relatively low through 2015. This could be a benefit to Nevada's economy, but the extra driving has some environmental and air quality officials worried.
Low gas prices may be leaving Nevadans with extra money in their pockets, but more driving could mean more air pollution. Will Toor with the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project says research shows that in the past few years Nevadans are driving less in favor of public transportation, bicycling and walking. Despite gas prices being low right now, Toor is hopeful that this trend will continue.
