Gas prices drop to $3 average ahead of Christmas holiday

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Average gas prices in South Carolina fell a little more than 7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3 on Sunday, reports GasBuddy.com. 

The national average dropped 8 cents per gallon to $3.25 last week, the website reported. 

Prices on Sunday were almost 2 cents per gallon lower than the average price a year ago and nearly 9 cents lower than a month ago. The national average is still 1.3 cents above the average price a year ago, GasBuddy reported. 

 

"The drop in gas prices certainly has been well noted -- in some instances people have been calling this a gas price crash. Dub it whatever you like, but I'll remind motorists: gasoline prices in some areas still could set all-time record highs for Christmas Day," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"While it is excellent that gasoline prices have dropped, I'm not on board with this being called a gas price crash. Call me a grinch, call me a realist, but at the end of the day, data doesn't lie -- and that data shows that gasoline prices are still clinging near all time highs for today's date," DeHaan said.
