There has been some pretty dismal economic news over the past few days, but one slightly upbeat development is seen in gas prices, which have slid a bit.
The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.65, according to AAA, which is 6 cents lower than a week ago.
Nationally, the average price is $3.66.
AAA's website said the lowest priced gasoline in the state is in Augusta, at $3.50, while Athens had the highest, at $3.70.
If you're planning to head north, make sure you stop in Greenville, S.C., where as of yesterday, gas could be had for as low as $3.37.
But the good old days of 2010 saw us paying about a dollar a gallon less than what we're paying now.
