GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area climbed 4.6 cents during the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.13 - 30 cents lower than the national average of $3.43.

Locally, the price was 4.8 cents cheaper than last month, but 10.6 cents more expensive than last year. Nationally, the price was 14.1 cents lower than last month, but 11 cents higher than last year.

GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst said prices aren't expected to wildly fluctuate in either direction during the holidays.

"There are several factors putting both upward pressure and downward pressure on oil and gasoline," DeHaan said. "I expect some fluctuation in prices, but overall, there will likely not be much change between today and Christmas."

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.16 in South Carolina, $3.32 in North Carolina and $3.28 in Georgia.

Hawaii had the most expensive gas in the country, while Oklahoma had the cheapest prices, according to GasBuddy.com.
