GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area on Monday were 15 cents lower than last year, and 6 cents lower than last week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.52, which is 29 cents lower than the national average of $3.81 per gallon.

In addition to being lower than last year and last week, Greenville's gas prices were 15 cents lower than last month, as well, the website reported.

The national average was 8.6 cents lower than last month and 10.4 cents lower than last year, the website reported.

Experts said the decline is gas prices is not surprising, but the complaints about gas prices will not end anytime soon.

"Perhaps the rhetoric will wind down, but with summer around the corner, any sudden increase in price of gasoline will have Americans virtually calling for the heads of politicians in November," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.59 in South Carolina, $3.78 in North Carolina and $3.68 in Georgia.
