GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area dipped 1.8 cents in the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.10 - 16 cents lower than the national average.

Locally, the price was 14.7 cents higher than last month, but 7.1 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the price was 1.9 cents more than last month, but 8.9 cents less than last year.

"The national average now lags prices one year ago by 9 cents per gallon, which is a more optimistic start to the year than I would have expected," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
