Gas prices dip across SC, US

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Average retail gas prices dropped another 5.8 cents per gallon over the last week, GasBuddy.com reported Monday morning. 

"The national average has seen some downward direction in the last week, but the best is likely yet to come," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

According to the gas price tracking agency, the average price per gallon across the Palmetto State is $3.17. The national average fell by 4.5 cents to $3.54 per gallon. 

GasBuddy.com reported the recently tallied pricing data is 43 cents above the price per gallon of a year ago and are 2.7 cents below one month ago. 

Nationally, prices have dropped 31.6 cents per gallon over one year ago and stands at 2.7 cents per gallon lower than one month ago, the agency reported. 

"While there certainly are a few issues that could impact gasoline prices on our plate, the switch over back to winter gasoline has begun, and I do expect that gas prices may continue to move downward this week for most of the United States. California, however, does have some recent refining kinks that may mean it joins the lower price party a bit later, but by Halloween, my expectation is the national average will stand five to fifteen cents per gallon lower than where it is today," DeHaan said.
