PALMETTO STATE STILL HAS LOWEST PRICES IN AMERICA
The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in South Carolina currently stands at $1.93 – the lowest mark in the United States (beating Alabama by a penny). That’s essentially unchanged from a month ago – and way down from last year’s $2.67 mark.
It’s also below the national average of $2.19 – which is down from last year’s $2.91 average.
Obviously, that’s good news … but low gas prices have not sparked a consumer renaissance (certainly not in dirt poor South Carolina). That’s one reason we object to proposals to raise the state’s gasoline tax.
