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 MyrtleBeachGasPrices.com, 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.
