Gas prices in the region and beyond kept falling over the last week as fuel supply outpaced demand.
As of early Tuesday, Charlotte drivers are paying 6 cents less per gallon of unleaded gas now compared with last week, and $1.15 less compared with this time last year, according to auto group AAA.
Prices at the pump could continue to drop as global oil supply remains high, as driving demand slows and as refineries begin to transition to cheaper-to-produce winter-blend gasoline, according to a report this week from AAA, which surveys 120,000 gas stations across the country to determine average prices.
South Carolina again had the cheapest gas prices of any state in the country, AAA said.
