Gas prices in SC drop another 3 cents

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Gas prices in South Carolina edged down another 3.2 cents in the last week, according to research by gas price tracking website GasBuddy.com.

The website reports that the average gas per gallon in the Palmetto State sits at $3.06, which is 20 cents below the national average. Nationally, prices dropped 3.3 cents in the last week.

"The downward movement in national gasoline prices has continued for yet another week, thanks to a fall in commodity prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

Including the change in gas prices in South Carolina during the past week, prices yesterday were 6.2 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 1 cent per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 12.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 24.2 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"Oil prices continue to shed value, leading the way to lower gasoline prices. Five states -- all in the nation's midsection -- are now seeing their average prices under $3/gallon: Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Kansas, and motorists in those states certainly have a "there's no place like home" advantage," DeHaan said.
