Myrtle Beach Gas Prices, An Attraction of its Own
As many visitors to the Myrtle Beach area may notice, gas prices in the Grand Strand Area are much lower than other parts of the country.
Just look on Twitter and you’ll see the cheap Myrtle Beach gas prices are one of the first things people notice when they hit the beach and they want everyone to know about it!
According to the AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the national average is $3.41 for a gallon of regular gas, which is down from a week ago, but still high compared to South Carolina’s average which is $3.00 per gallon. In many places along the Grand Strand, gas prices are below the $3.00 mark, with prices as low as $2.85 in Myrtle Beach being reported on GasBuddy.
Lower gas prices make it easier to travel to and from the beach and allow families to save their hard-earned money for Myrtle Beach attractions, restaurants and accommodations. Visitors from North Carolina will especially notice the difference with their average being $3.26, more than 25 cents higher than South Carolina.
Many of the estimated 14 million Myrtle Beach visitors drive each year, because it is cheaper than flying the entire family, they can pack things like beach chairs and umbrellas and they want to be able to have transportation while at the beach. With Myrtle Beach gas prices so low, why not drive here today?
