Gas prices in the Greenville area slipped down two cents last week, according to GasBuddy.com.
The price-tracking website said Monday that the price for a gallon of gas in the Greenville area was at $3.55 - 26 cents lower than the national average of $3.81.
Locally, the price was 21.9 cents higher than last month and 19.4 cents higher than last year. Nationally, the price was 14.6 cents more than last month and 14.9 cents more than last year.
Experts said that the effects of Isaac are still being felt on the nation's gasoline supply as refineries work to catch up.
"Supply remains tight across the country as we slowly approach the transition to winter-spec gasoline, but I continue to be firm in believing that the national average will start to decline towards the end of September, as is typically the case," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.59 in South Carolina, $3.81 in North Carolina and $3.80 in Georgia.
The cheapest gas in the U.S. was found in Mississippi, according to GasBuddy.com.
