GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area increased 18.7 cents during the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.48, or 20 cents lower than the national average.

Locally, the price was 37.8 cents higher than last month and 10.8 cents higher than last year. Nationally, the price was 42.2 cents more than last month and 16.7 cents more than last year.

Experts said the trend of increasing prices at the pump will continue.

"The steady climb of retail gas prices is likely to continue following double-digit increases in wholesale prices with fuel production tightening in the majority of the country's refineries," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski.

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.53 in South Carolina, $3.68 in North Carolina and $3.66 in Georgia.

GasBuddy.com reported the nation's cheapest gas was found in Wyoming, while the most expensive was found in Hawaii.
