In the last month, prices at the gas pump have dropped by double digits. The price in South Carolina yesterday averaged $2.11 –25 cents lower than one month ago. The spokeswoman for AAA Carolinas, Tiffany Wright, says, “Lower crude oil costs, less demand and a high level of gasoline stocks are the main reasons….” Wright added this: “We expect prices to decrease again this week especially if concerns about the coronavirus continue to weigh on the crude oil market.” The virus is having an effect on international travel.
