COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) - Gas prices in South Carolina  and across the country continue to tick upwards.

Average retail gasoline prices have risen 3.3 cents in the last week across the state to an average of $3.58 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy. Nationally, gas prices have risen by 2.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.72 per gallon.

Including the most recent increase, GasBuddy said gas prices in South Carolina are up 7.8 cents per gallon higher than one year ago and 41.5 cents per gallon higher than one month ago.

The national average has increased 42 cents in the last month and is 9.1 cents over the price per gallon of a year ago, the gas price tracking website said.


"The streak is over," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "GasBuddy data showed the national average rising for 32 consecutive days -- starting Jan. 20 at $3.265 per gallon and ending Feb. 21 at $3.733 per gallon."

"The tide has now turned and the national average has dropped two days straight. This is certainly excellent news for disillusioned motorists. But I would caution them not to get overly thrilled as prices may linger near these levels for some time," DeHaan said.
