The average price per gallon for gasoline in Greenville rose nearly eight cents in the past week, the fuel price monitoring service Gas Buddy stated Monday.

Gas prices were averaging $2.59 per gallon as of Monday’s release, based on Gas Buddy’s survey of 452 gas stations in the Greenville area.

Greenville’s gas prices are currently more than fifty cents higher than they were this time last year.

They are also more than 30 cents higher than they were one month ago.

Nationally, gas prices rose more than four cents per gallon in the last week to $2.81 per gallon.

"The national average is now at its highest point since November 2014 with average gas prices advancing in nearly every state," Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy stated in a news release. "The only good news for motorists? We're nearing a turning point in the U.S.- gas prices are perhaps just a dime away from hitting a peak for the short-term, pending OPEC's meeting in June. With refineries well positioned for the summer months, we look for some relief by mid-June, but do expect this summer to remain one of the priciest in the last few as average prices climb close to the psychological $3 per gallon barrier."
