The cost to fill up in the Palmetto State is now below $2 a gallon for the first time since a brief appearance at that mark in March and remains lowest in the nation.

Average retail gasoline prices in OH have fallen 9.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.12 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,345 gas outlets in Ohio.

The price in New Hampshire went down 3.9 cents to $2.23 a gallon and it went down 1.7 cents a gallon in Vermont.

Nationally, the average price of fuel Sunday was $2.30, down from $2.33 a week earlier, while Georgia's average price of $2.16 was down three cents in the same period, the auto club said. That's a decrease of 7.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 5.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

He cautioned that more price declines could be cut off as hurricane season ramps up.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.28/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Los Angeles- $2.98/g, down 3.9 cents per gallon from last week's $3.02/g.

"We could see another week with a majority of states seeing prices move lower again, thanks to gasoline inventories that remain quite healthy, along with refiners that continue to push out product at rates that have been higher than demand, leading to crude oil prices that have struggled mightily to gain a footing", DeHaan said. USA crude settled on Friday at $44.74.

In South Carolina, motorists will find the lowest fuel prices in the Greenville-Spartanburg area at an average cost of $1.90 a gallon, according to AAA.
