Gas prices in SC continue downward trend

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Gas prices dropped again last week to an average of $3.11 per gallon across the state, according to gas price tracking website

Gas Buddy reports that prices fell in South Carolina by 4.6 cents per gallon in the last week, a tenth of a cent more than the national average. Nationally, gas prices are at $3.49 per gallon.

"Gasoline prices continue to move lower nationally as we've now officially moved into fall," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

South Carolina gas prices on Sunday were 42.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has dropped 7.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 32.1 cents per gallon lower than one year ago.

"Looking forward, we're likely to see additional relief at pumps in the months ahead, and it's quite possible that by the time we're observing Thanksgiving that gasoline prices will be twenty or more cents per gallon lower. Californian motorists will see among the larger decreases in the week ahead as refinery issues have become barely visible in the rear view, which has led to a dramatic downward shift in wholesale gasoline prices," DeHaan said.
