BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The July Fourth weekend is less than a month away and gas prices are still climbing in some areas.

Louisiana no longer has the cheapest average in the country. South Carolina wins that category this week.

Prices at the pump in the Bayou State are still holding pretty low, averaging about $2.56 per gallon, which is still a far cry from the national average of about $2.92.

Experts predict gas prices will start falling this month.

"Gas prices will likely decline in the month of June as summer gasoline inventories continue to build and refiners continue to crank out fuels like gasoline and diesel," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

He added average gas prices actually dropped in some states last week and he expects that to happen again this week.
