Gas prices down 5.7 cents last week

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) - Average retail gasoline prices in South Carolina fell 5.7 cents per gallon in the last week, according to GasBuddy.

Currently, the average price is $3.52 per gallon across the state.

The gas tracking website says prices recorded Sunday were 2.8 cents lower than the same day a year ago and 21.8 cents higher than one month ago. The national average per gallon has increased 21.6 cents in the last month and is less than a cent lower than the same day a year ago.

"Gasoline prices have continued to remain relatively stable in the last week, falling a few cents per gallon, providing well needed relief to motorists," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Perhaps more noteworthy, however, is the fact that current average gasoline prices have now fallen under their year ago levels. And perhaps the best news is that the national average will likely continue to decline in most areas east of the Rockies in the week ahead as wholesale gasoline prices have given up ground," DeHaan said.
