Headlines Tuesday: Average SC Gas Price Drops 8 Cents
The average price of gas fell about 8 cents at $3.82 a gallon since last week in South Carolina, according to a GasBuddy survey. This is believed to be partly due to President Biden’s announcement that 180 million barrels of the country’s strategic oil reserve will be released to drive down prices.
