SC gas prices up 5 cents over last week

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- Gas prices continue to climb in South Carolina as summer draws closer. Average prices rose 5 cents per gallon to an average of $3.32 on Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com.

The gas price tracking website says the national average only rose 1.3 cents per gallon to an average price of $3.55. 

"Gasoline prices have seen an ever so slight increase in the last week across a good portion of the nation, which is certainly good news for spring break travelers," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. 

Including the change in gas prices in South Carolina during the past week, prices yesterday were 1.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 15.7 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 7.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. 

"For those who may be headed to California, they may be greeted with rising prices to the tune of 10-20 cents per gallon over the next two weeks. For much of the rest of the country, including Florida destinations, prices shouldn't be holding many back from hitting the road. This spring has seen very little volatility so far, and if it remains that way, I may have to revise downward my forecast for gas prices for the rest of April and May, which my wallet would certainly love," DeHaan said.
