Cheapest gas in country
Drivers in South Carolina are able to find gasoline under $2 per gallon, and many are packing the pumps to cash in. Travel leaders from AAA predict lower prices may continue over the next several months as the price of oil drops.
“I don’t even remember the last time it was below two dollars, ” said Bobbi Wilson from Fort Mill. She stopped to fill up after passing a sign advertising gas for $1.99 in Rock Hill.
Right now at pumps in the Palmetto State, drivers are paying less than just about anyone else in the country.
“I just came from New York and the gas was $2.70, $1.99 is real nice, ” said Steve Wedlock, who is visiting family in Rock Hill.
Drivers can’t believe their price per gallon starts with a 1 and are ready to see some extra money with the savings.
“I’m going to spend it in Florida, ” said Tom Flowe from Matthews. Flowe was filling up in Rock Hill on his way to the beach. He said it saved him more than 50 cents a gallon.
Flowe hopes the trail of savings continues into Florida.
“On the trip I can normally fill up from here to Fort Myers in three tanks, " Flowe said. "I’ll probably spend $85 compared to what used to be $125 to $140."
Flowe hopes on his return trip, gas prices in Charlotte will be closer to the numbers he’s seeing today. Several online gas price trackers list Charlotte’s pump price averaging around $2.50 Wednesday afternoon.
“North Carolina didn’t get the memo yet, the email must have got lost somewhere but I’m sure it will continue to drop, ” Flowe joked.
