Here are some tips on what to look for to protect yourself against fraud when paying at the pump.

As travelers prepare to hit the road this holiday season, they can expect to find a little present waiting for them at the pump: cheaper gas prices.

AAA reported on Dec. 3 that for the first time in 18 months, the national gas average would be cheaper than it was a year ago.

Compared to last year, that average — $2.24 — is two cents cheaper than it was on July 6, 2017, according to the media release.

Not only is today’s national gas price average cheaper, but it is 31 cents cheaper than a month ago. This week 24 states saw gas prices drop double digits.

For South Carolina, that means prices have decreased at least 34 cents and that trend could be consistent for the rest of December, AAA said.

Here are some places in Horry County where you can find the cheapest gas.
