GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices rose only slightly this past week in Greenville, making the average $3.24 a gallon, according to the gasoline price website Gasbuddy.com.

The price is only 1 cent higher than last week's average price.

The national average has increased 3.2 cents over the past week, bringing the average to $3.68 a gallon, according to Gasbuddy.

The price of gas in Greenville is 8.2 cents higher than it was a month ago. Prices on Sunday were 15.5 cents higher than they were a year ago in Greenville.

"The national average has seen the upward trend continuing, with average prices climbing across an abundance of the U.S.," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"The price of WTI oil continues to rise to levels not seen in quite some time, and that may continue, at least for the time being, to put more upward pressure on gasoline prices. While the worst may be behind us, I do believe the week ahead will likely feature another rise in the national average," DeHaan said.
