GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices in the Greenville area fell 3 cents during the past week, according to GasBuddy.com.

The price-tracking website reported Monday the average cost for a gallon of gas in the Greenville area was at $3.34 - 30 cents below the national average.

Locally, the price was 16.4 cents lower than last month and 27.8 cents lower than last year. Nationally, the price was 9.5 cents less than last month and 21.9 cents less than last year.

"Average gasoline prices have continued to quietly move lower in the last week across much of the United States at a time of year when we historically are accustomed to seeing prices move higher," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "As of late last week, all fifty states saw lower gasoline prices than the same date last year, and the savings at the pump for motorists - while not staggering - amounts to millions of dollars a day."

AAA reported the average cost for a gallon of gas was at $3.44 in South Carolina, $3.65 in North Carolina and $3.52 in Georgia.

Hawaii had the nation's most expensive gas, while Wyoming had that nation's cheapest, according to GasBuddy.com.
