AAA Reports Gas Prices on the Decline
Motorists in the Carolinas experienced another week of decreasing prices at the pump as demand continues to remain low across the country. South Carolina made the nation’s top 10 least expensive markets with an average of $1.89, seeing a three cent decrease on the week. This average is 5 cents cheaper than a month ago and 53 cents cheaper than a year ago. Today’s national average is $2.18, one cent more than last month and 56 cents cheaper than last year. As COVID-19 cases surpass 4 million, gasoline demand is weakening across the country and the low demand has contributed to the cheaper national average. AAA said that this is the first time since late April that the national average has declined.
