GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Gas prices are down again in Greenville and across the nation Monday, according to the gas pricing website GasBuddy.com.

The average retail price for a gallon of gasoline in Greenville fell 3.4 cents in the past week. The over 3-cent drop brought the average price down to $3.02 per gallon.

The national average fell 3.3 cents per gallon, bringing the average price down to $3.26 cents, according to GasBuddy.

The national average went down 12.8 cents per gallon during the last month and it is 24.2 cents per gallon lower than a year ago, GasBuddy said.

"The downward movement in national gasoline prices has continued for yet another week, thanks to a fall in commodity prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Oil prices continue to shed value, leading the way to lower gasoline prices. Five states- all in the nation's midsection- are now seeing their average prices under $3/gallon: Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Kansas, and motorists in those states certainly have a "there's no place like home" advantage," DeHaan said.
