Gas prices dropping to near pre-hurricane level


Check gas prices here.

Prices are starting to plunge as refineries in the Southeast are beginning to operate at full capacity again.

South Carolina and North Carolina are among the top 10 largest decreases in gas prices over the past week. South Carolina saw a nine-cent drop and North Carolina saw an eight cent drop in the last week, according to AAA Carolinas.

On this day last month in South Carolina, gas prices averaged $2.56 while today they average $2.33 – a 23 cent decrease. North Carolina showed a 20-cent drop.

Retail gas prices are showing steady promise of returning to pre-hurricane rates. Hurricane Nate is not expected to slow oil productions or have an effect on the price of gasoline.
