GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices rose again this week in Greenville and experts said it might get worse.

The average retail price for a gallon of gasoline in Greenville went up 4.6 cents in the past week, bringing the average to $3.25 per gallon.

Prices around the country also keep going up. The national average rose 1.8 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.53 per gallon, according to the gasoline price website GasBuddy.com

"Another week, another rise in the national average," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"While gasoline prices have seen slight increases in the last week, it still may get worse. Last week, the EIA reported a large drop in gasoline inventories as refiners purged supplies of winter spec gasoline. Refineries also utilized a lower amount of their capacity as maintenance season continues. In the next few weeks as maintenance is finished, there could be localized price spikes. While gasoline prices are lower than I would have expected a few months ago, there is still some risk for higher prices in the days ahead,"DeHaan said.

The average price in Greenville this week is 6.5 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and 15.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, according to GasBuddy.com.
