GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area have fallen 9.5 cents in the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The gas price-reporting website said prices averaged $2.93 on Sunday, which is about 30 cents lower than the average national price.

"The drop in gas prices certainly has been well noted - in some instances people have been calling this a gas price crash. Dub it whatever you like, but I'll remind motorists: gasoline prices in some areas still could set all-time record highs for Christmas Day," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

DeHaan said while prices have dropped, he does not consider it a gas price crash.

"Call me a Grinch, call me a realist, but at the end of the day, data doesn't lie - and that data shows that gasoline prices are still clinging near all time highs for today's date," DeHaan said.
