GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area increased 16.2 cents from last week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported Monday that the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.29 - 31 cents below the national average of $3.60.

Locally, the price was 36.3 cents higher than a month ago, but 13.1 cents lower than last year. Nationally, prices were 19.1 cents higher than last month, but 6.5 cents lower than last year.

Experts said that with summer coming to an end, the trend of higher gas prices may follow suit.

"The good news for motorists is that the end to the summer driving season and change to winter-spec fuel is in view, which will likely put downward pressure on gasoline prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.32 in South Carolina, $3.52 in North Carolina and $3.49 in Georgia.
