GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Gas prices in the Greenville area have crept back up after a few weeks of declining prices, according to gas price website GasBuddy.com.
The website reported a rise of 3.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.18 per gallon of gas in the Greenville area on Sunday.
GasBuddy.com reported that the Greenville average is 39 cents cheaper than the national average, which has risen 5 cents per gallon in the past month.
"The national average has perked up again in the last seven days across the nation," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Many motorists remain skeptical of the so-called reasons that we blame higher prices on: refinery production and maintenance, tightening supply, and the now completed switch over to EPA mandated cleaner summer gasoline."
While experts predicted the rise in local and national prices, they remain cheaper than this time last year.
Sunday's prices were 17.2 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 2.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago in Greenville, according to the website.
To track Greenville's gas prices, the website says it surveys 452 gas outlets in Greenville daily.
