Gas prices fell slightly this week in Greenville and they are predicted to drop even more in the end of January.

The average retail price for a gallon of gasoline fell 1.5 cents in the past week, bringing the average price down to $3.01 per gallon in Greenville. 

This compares to the national average which dropped 2.2 cents, bringing the average down $3.27 per gallon, according to the gas price website

"The national average has picked up some downward momentum over the last week," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"It's likely that during this week, we will see gasoline prices again drop below their year ago levels yet again. However, as we're approaching February, the most recent drops will likely reverse as refineries begin their maintenance season," DeHaan said.

Gasbuddy said prices in Greenville were 3.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and 9.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

GasBuddy surveys 452 gas outlets in Greenville for their data.
