Gas prices in the Greenville area rose less than one cent from last week, GasBuddy.com reported Monday.
The price-tracking website reported that Greenville drivers were paying an average of $3.34 per gallon - 36 cents below the national average of $3.70.
Locally, the price was 28.4 cents higher than a month ago and 3.9 cents higher than a year ago. Nationally, the price was 21.9 cents higher than last month and 11.8 cents higher than last year.
Experts said the slowing upward pace of gas prices should continue.
"As the West Coast and Great Lakes see refining issues in the rear view mirror, as well as the end of the summer driving season approaching, we may see a new downward pattern develop which could see average prices falling - especially after mid-September, a pattern that could dominate the gas pump until the holiday season," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.43 in South Carolina, $3.68 in North Carolina and $3.64 in Georgia.
