BUT THE PALMETTO STATE STILL HAS SOME OF AMERICA’S CHEAPEST GAS
After plummeting below $3.00 a gallon earlier this year, gasoline prices are on their way back up in South Carolina.
According to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report the average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline in the Palmetto State currently stands at $3.40. That’s an increase of 42 cents over the last six weeks – although gas remains cheaper in South Carolina than any other state in the nation save for Arizona.
Currently the national average price for a gallon of unleaded gas is $3.69 – which is up thirty cents from last month.
FITS has been checking in on gas prices periodically over the last few months – and it’s been a wild ride. After starting the year at $3.22 per gallon in January, gas prices in South Carolina shot up to $3.72 per gallon in April. Then they fell all the way down to $2.98 before beginning another steady climb.
What’s next for this roller coaster ride?
