Gas prices in the Greenville area jumped 14.2 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 $3.27 - 21 cents lower than the national average.
Locally, the price was 13 cents higher than last month, but 3.3 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the price was 21.1 cents more than last month and 4.4 cents higher than last year.
Experts said rising oil prices are at fault for the spike.
"Unfortunately, for angry motorists, there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight, at least for the time being, as retail prices continue to climb in virtually all areas of the country," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.31 for South Carolina, $3.48 in North Carolina and $3.45 in Georgia.
