GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices went up again in Greenville over the past week, and are expected to keep rising in the near future, according to the gas pricing website GasBuddy.com.

The average retail price for a gallon of gas in Greenville rose 6.2 cents per gallon bringing the average up to $3.37 per gallon on Sunday.

The national average also increased, going up 3.4 cents per gallon. The increase brought the average price to $3.59 per gallon.

"The national average has zoomed higher in the last week, regaining some upward momentum and bringing us to the highest national average so far this year," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"As we get very near the final shift to summer spec gasoline, we're seeing prices continue to creep higher in many communities across the country. GasBuddy last week released a forecast for what motorists should expect this summer. And to summarize, we expect prices nationally between April and September to average out to $3.52 a gal, which would be slightly under the same period last year," DeHaan said.

The national average on Sunday was more than 9 cents higher than it was a month ago and 7 cents more than a year ago.
