Our founding editor Will Folks was headed to the gym one morning this week when he passed a gas station and decided to fire off a snippy message to the FITS staff.
“Clearly been awhile since we’ve done a gas price update,” he texted. “Somebody please do one.”
Cleary been awhile since you’ve been to the gym.
Anyway, it has been awhile since we did a gas price update, so here goes …
According to the latest data from Gas Buddy, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in South Carolina currently stands at $1.95. That’s roughly thirty-five cents below the current national average – and twenty-four cents lower than it was just two months ago.
In some areas of the Palmetto State, prices were as low as $1.71 per gallon.
We’ll be watching fuel prices much more closely as yet another major push is currently underway to raise South Carolina’s gas tax – a move this website has consistently opposed.
