SC gas prices up 4 cents in last week

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Gas prices edged up four cents across the state of South Carolina last week to an average price of $3.27 per gallon. 

According to GasBuddy.com, the national prices only rose 1.8 cents to an average of $3.53 per gallon. 

"Another week, another rise in the national average," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. 

Including the most recent increase, prices in the state were 11.8 cents lower per gallon that the same day one year ago but 12.9 cents higher than one month ago. 

Nationally, prices are 8.3 cents lower than one year ago and 9.2 cents higher than one month ago.

"While gasoline prices have seen slight increases in the last week, it still may get worse. Last week, the EIA reported a large drop in gasoline inventories as refiners purged supplies of winter spec gasoline. Refineries also utilized a lower amount of their capacity as maintenance season continues. In the next few weeks as maintenance is finished, there could be localized price spikes. While gasoline prices are lower than I would have expected a few months ago, there is still some risk for higher prices in the days ahead," DeHaan said.
