GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area were eight cents lower Monday than last week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website said that the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.01 - 55 cents lower than the national average.

Locally, Monday's prices were 35.5 cents lower than last month and 36 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the prices were 17 cents lower than last month and 16 lower than last year.

Experts said the recent slip in gas prices may be coming to an end.

"While current factors still point to some falling gasoline prices in some areas, mainly the West Coast, oil prices haven't continued to shed as much value in the past week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Prices in the past few years have bottomed out in June, and we could see a similar situation play out this year."

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.12 in South Carolina, $3.37 in North Carolina and $3.30 in Georgia.
