GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area dropped 1.2 cents in the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website said the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.14 - 12 cents below the national average.

Locally, the price was 18.9 cents higher than last month, but 1.8 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the price was 1.4 cents less than last month and 8.7 cents less than last year.

Experts said a tremendous increase in supply has lead to the recently steady gas prices.

"It appears that this year there will be little change in gas prices between Christmas and mid-January, something that has only happened one out of the last seven years," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "It's hard for prices to rally with the monster increases in supply we've been seeing."

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.20 in South Carolina, $3.37 in North Carolina and $3.32 in Georgia.

According to GasBuddy.com, Hawaii had the most expensive gas in the nation at $4.03 per gallon, while Wyoming had the cheapest gas at $2.79 per gallon.
