COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- There are still some isolated problems with gas supplies in parts of North and South Carolina. But a spokeswoman for AAA-Carolinas says the good news is that gas prices are slowly coming down.
Carol Gifford says shortages remain throughout both states, in particular in Asheville and Charlotte in North Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina.
She says oil refineries are still working at reduced levels after the recent hurricanes.
Gifford says the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded in South Carolina is now $3.87. The average in North Carolina is $3.93, down two cents from Sunday's level
Gifford says on the national level, gas prices have fallen five days in a row.
