If you want a dedicated gui graphing application, then you can't go far wrong with Grace - it's in EPEL. I've used it for producing publication quality plots but it's equally capable of dealing with everyday graphing. The native save file format is simple and plain text, so it's quite easy to generate the files using a script which can then be read straight in to grace and will have correct axes, lables, etc. P.
