Is anyone having problems filling up with gas on Hilton Head? How about coming up I-95 from FL? What are the gas prices in this area? We're in the Tampa FL area. Gas price is about $3.70 a gallon and there doesn't seem to be a gas shortage here. Thanks for any feedback.

I am so glad you asked this question. We will be coming from Atlanta to Hilton Head on September 28th. We are having trouble getting gas here. Anyone made the trip and were you able to get gas?

Not sure about South Carolina, but we're having trouble here in NC. I couldn't find any gas yesterday..finally found regular today (my car is supposed to run on premium but she may have to swallow a little regular for the time being !)

We were able to get gas today at Costco. I am hoping that we will have enough to get most of the way to HH.

$3.55 at Sam's at Pooler exit of I 95. $3.57 at Walmart on 278. Our gas comes from a source different from North Georgia. We just left Athens today and the price was $4 and running out at some stations with lines at some. Atlanta news looked bad for that area.

Hilton Head Gas

We returned last weekend from HHI and filled up the night before leaving at $3.15 per gallon on the island. Off island prices were similar at that time.

Just returned from HHI Saturday, 10-18. Gas was readily available at $2.85-$2.89 on the island (down 5-10 cents from earlier in the week and should continue to drop.) Cheapest Saturday afternoon was US 278 @ I-95 at $2.75 to $2.79. Note that gas in SC is typically cheaper than adjacent states.

gas prices on teh web

before heading out of town on TS vacations I pull up Gasbuddy.com and check current gas prices on the route to the resort..

they are very current and correct most of the time.. when prices were going up they might be a bit low and now the prices are coming down the actual price could be lower than posted. you can see a 20-30 cents different just a couple exits apart.

Tought of this thread

Thought about this thread today, coming up I-95. When we went to Florida about 6 weeks ago, we were happy to find gas under $4 a gallon. Today in southern VA, we saw gas at $1.89. What a difference this short amount of time meant. We paid about 1/2 as much for gas coming home from Florida than going.
