Gas prices in the Greenville area continued their downward trend, dropping 2.4 cents from last week, according to GasBuddy.com.
The price-tracking website reported average cost for a gallon of gas for Greenville drivers was at $2.99 - 54 cents lower than the national average of $3.53 per gallon.
Locally, Monday's prices were 30.1 cents lower than last month and 32.2 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the prices were 17.6 cents lower than last month and 12.6 cents lower than last year.
Experts said that unrest in the Euro Zone, especially in Greece, may create an increase in oil prices this week.
"We could see oil prices gain as markets feel more upbeat about the economic situation," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "While any gains in oil prices won't likely be immediately felt, the debt situation in Europe bears keeping a close eye on as it has far reaching global implications."
AAA Carolinas reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.07 in South Carolina, $3.33 in North Carolina and $3.26 in Georgia.
