Where to find the cheapest gas in Beau­fort County

The Beaufort Gazette - - Local - BY BRI­ANA SAUN­DERS bsaun­[email protected]­land­packet.com

As trav­el­ers pre­pare to hit the road this hol­i­day sea­son, they can ex­pect to find a lit­tle present wait­ing for them at the pump: cheaper gas prices.

AAA re­ported on Dec. 3 that for the first time in 18 months, the na­tional gas av­er­age would be cheaper than it was a year ago.

Com­pared to last year, that av­er­age — $2.24 — is two cents cheaper than it was on July 6, 2017, ac­cord­ing to the me­dia re­lease.

Not only is to­day’s na­tional gas price av­er­age cheaper, but it is 31 cents cheaper than a month ago. On the week, 24 states saw gas prices drop dou­ble dig­its.

For South Carolina, that means prices have de­creased at least 34 cents and that trend could be con­sis­tent for the rest of De­cem­ber, AAA said.

Here are some places in Beau­fort County where you can find the cheapest gas.
