Gas prices in the Greenville area did not change during the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.
The price-tracking website reported Monday that the average cost for a gallon of gas in Greenville was at $3.50 - 22 cents lower than the national average.
Locally, the price was 38.3 cents higher than last month and 4 cents higher than last year. Nationally, the price was 42 cents more than last month and 9.1 cents more than last year.
Experts said this may be a sign that gas prices are headed back down.
"The tide has now turned and the national average has dropped two days straight," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst, Patrick DeHaan. "This is certainly excellent news for disillusioned motorists - but I would caution them not to get overly thrilled as prices may linger near these levels for some time."
AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.60 in South Carolina, $3.79 in North Carolina and $3.76 in Georgia.
GasBuddy.com reported that Wyoming had the nation's lowest gas prices, while Hawaii had that highest.
