Greenville area gas prices continue slow decline

Posted: Updated:

Gas prices in the Greenville area fell 3 cents in the past week, averaging $3.16 per gallon, according to

Prices were lower on Sunday compared with a month ago and this time last year.

"The slow trend downward in the national average has survived another week," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "While unprecedented, the decline in the national average certainly has delighted motorists who are used to large spikes in gasoline prices that come with the territory of springtime."

DeHaan said with Memorial Day just five weeks away, prices will likely continue to lag behind 2012 levels.

Sunday's prices were 19 cents per gallon less than late March and nearly 43 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
