Rock Hill has lowest gas prices in the country

Gasoline prices in Rock Hill are the lowest in the country, and the cost in South Carolina could average about $3 per gallon this fall, some analysts say.

Rock Hill gas prices generally range from $3.01 to about $3.10 per gallon of regular unleaded.

For a couple of weeks this month, the price at some stations approached $2.90.

In August, the area’s average price of $3.08 has been the lowest in the United States, according to GasBuddy.com.

The statewide average is $3.15. Increased competition from stations such as QuikTrip – which has added seven locations in York County in the past two years – is helping keep local gas prices low, analysts say. The (Rock Hill) Herald
