GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

While students celebrate the start of summer, drivers may be celebrating a drop in gas prices.

In the past week, gas prices in the Greenville area fell 2.1 cents, averaging $3.15 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com.

The gas-price tracking website reported that local prices are nearly 50 cents less than the national average.

The prices are 5.6 cents lower than they were this time last year, but are 3.6 cents higher than a month ago, leaving consumers with a recent flux in prices, according to the website.

"While the national average has given up some ground to start the driving season, motorists have certainly seen a lot of ups and downs in different areas of the country," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
