GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices were up in Greenville and across the nation on the week leading up to the new year. 

The average price for a gallon of gasoline in Greenville rose more than 5 cents in the past week, according to the gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. The average price now stands at $3.04 in Greenville. 

The national average for a gallon of gas also rose over the last week by 5 cents, bringing the national average to $3.29 per gallon, according to Gasbuddy. 

"The sub $3/gallon gas was great while it lasted, but unfortunately it has nearly completely dried up," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "As of late Sunday night, zero states were seeing their averages under $3/gallon. As the New Year rolls in, this is a type of trend that we're used to seeing. The bottom is behind us and prices generally begin the New Year on a higher note, like they will again this year," DeHaan said.
