GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area Monday fell 6.6 cents from last week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported that the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $2.83 in Greenville - 54 cents lower than the national average of $3.37 per gallon.

Locally, Monday's prices were 28.5 cents lower than last month and 40.4 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the prices were 24 cents lower than last month and 19.8 cents lower than last year.

Experts said the recent drop in gas prices will not continue much longer.

"Oil prices rose significantly last Friday, reversing a downward trend," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "It was the largest, single-day jump in recent memory."

DeHaan said most regions soon will see gas prices stabilize or jump higher.

AAA reported the average price for a gallon of gas was at $2.91 in South Carolina, $3.18 in North Carolina and $3.12 in Georgia.
