Driver Filling Fuel Tank


Without a doubt, the list is long of good reasons to stay in a Charleston beach house  —  be it one of Exclusive Properties’ Isle of Palms luxury rentals or maybe a Folly Beach house Charleston.


You’ll have plenty of room for all your family and friends.  (Our Isle of Palms vacation rentals are among the biggest on the island).


You’ll be close to the beach (most of our beach rentals Charleston are just steps from the sand) —- AND the history and charm of downtown Charleston (an easy 20-minute or so drive from all our beach house rentals Charleston SC).


And if you drive to our SC vacation rentals or rent a car while you’re here, you’ll enjoy the lowest gas prices of any state in the country.


Not only that, but prices are falling as the summer progresses.


Right now, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in South Carolina is 93 cents lower than it was at this time last year.  The price fell three cents last week and has fallen 11 cents over the past month.  (This is compared to the national average, which dropped one cent last week and 3.5 cents over the past month.)

Gas prices have been in the news a lot lately.  Read more in this recent BLOG.


There’s even more good news.  According to Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy, who surveys over 3,000 gas outlets in SC each day: “With oil nearing $50 per barrel, there’s a very good possibility that by mid-fall, gasoline prices could fall under $2 a gallon in a growing number of states.”


Prices vary around the area, but there’s a handy app by Live 5 News that shows the latest local news and weather as well as the lowest gas prices in the Lowcountry, available for iPhone and Android.

Also, here’s a link to the gas price feature on their website:
