Gas prices continue to climb in the Carolinas. South Carolina’s average is $2.54, a 5-cent increase on the week and a 15-cent increase on the month.

Gas Buddy only listed three stations in Greer with a gallon of unleaded regular under $2.49.

North Carolina’s current average is $2.67, a 4-cent increase on the week and a 19-cent increase on the month.

The national average ticking up a nickel to $2.78. “Demand is exceptionally high for this time of year at the pumps – the highest ever seen for the month of April,” said Tiffany Wright, AAA Carolinas spokesperson. “While we hope we won’t hit the $3 mark, we continue to see prices go up each week and we haven’t even started the summer driving season yet.”
