Gas prices up over 12 cents in last week

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - Average retail gas prices in South Carolina have jumped up more than 12 cents in the last week, according to gas price tracking website GasBuddy.

The average price in the Palmetto State is now $3.30 per gallon.

The national average increased over 14 cents per gallon to $3.48.

"The national average has ticked higher in the last week, as rising oil prices have put upward pressure on gasoline prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Unfortunately for angry motorists, there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight, at least for the time being, as retail prices continue to climb in virtually all areas of the country," DeHaan said.
