Gas keeps getting cheaper in the Charlotte region.
As of early Tuesday, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gas in the Charlotte metro had fallen 4 cents over the week, according to auto group AAA. Average prices in North and South Carolina each fell 4 cents over the week, and the national average price fell 3 cents.
Gas prices keep declining even as demand for fuel ramps up, since more people drive during summer months. Abundant fuel supplies and declining oil prices are keeping gas costs the lowest they have been for this time of the year since 2004, AAA said in a report this week.
About one in four U.S. gas stations are selling gas for less than $2 a gallon today, AAA estimated.
Below are the average gas prices in the Charlotte area, which includes Gastonia and Rock Hill, in the Carolinas and in the rest of the U.S. AAA surveys 120,000 stations nationwide to determine average prices.
