Myrtle Beach gas prices continue downward after 12 month high

Even though we're still below the national average for gasoline prices, it still hurt when Myrtle Beach gas prices hit their 12 month high in mid-May at nearly $4 per gallon.

But according to, the average retail price for gas in our area is more on the $3 side of things. In fact you can get $3.15 in Conway right now at the 501 Mini Mart. As we are primarily a drive-to vacation destination, this is good news for Myrtle Beach as we head into the July 4th weekend. 

Just keep in mind that even a 25¢ per gallon difference only makes about a  $4 difference on most fill ups, so factor that in to your cheap gas hunts.
