Gas prices in the Charlotte region continued their downward slump, falling about 3 cents over the last week.
The local trend reflects the picture nationally, where the average price of a gallon of unleaded gas dropped 1 cent over the week thanks to ample supplies of oil nationally and globally, according to a report this week from auto group AAA.
The national average is expected to soon fall below the $2 a gallon mark for the first time since 2009, says AAA, which surveys 120,000 U.S. stations to determine average prices.
South Carolina is the state with the second-cheapest gas in the U.S., right behind Missouri.
Never miss a local story.
