AAA Carolinas says South Carolina motorists are paying less at the pump this week.
The statewide average price is about $3.60 per gallon.
That’s about 3 cents cheaper than last week and about 10 cents less than at the same time last year.
The price of gas in South Carolina peaked this year on April 9 at an average price of $3.74 per gallon.
AAA says prices have since been declining daily.
Last year, the state’s spring average price peaked on May 12 at $3.75 per gallon and then dropped nearly 23 cents by the end of the month.
AAA Carolinas CEO David Parsons says he hopes that trend repeats this year.
The price of gas in South Carolina is currently the fourth lowest in the nation.
