Gas prices in the Greenville area fell 4.7 cents last week, according to GasBuddy.com.
The price-tracking website reported the average cost for a gallon of gas in the Greenville area was at $3.41 - 38 cents lower than the national average of $3.79.
Locally, the price was 16.9 cents lower than last month but 37.7 cents higher than last year. Nationally, the price was down less than a cent but 33.2 cents more than last year.
Experts said that usually, as the temperatures drop, so do the gas prices.
"The small drop in gasoline prices isn't to the satisfaction of many," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I don't see enough relief to satisfy the majority of American motorists any time soon."
AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.50 in South Carolina, $3.74 in North Carolina and $3.60 in Georgia.
South Carolina had the lowest gas prices in the country, while Hawaii had the highest, according to GasBuddy.com.
