Fort Lauderdale, Florida – The gas prices in Florida rise as people started to travel more and fuel demand intensifies.
“Rising crude oil and gasoline futures could drag retail gasoline prices higher this week,” Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for the American Automobile Association, said in an email. “Based on the shift in wholesale gasoline prices, Florida’s state average may rise a minimum of 5-10 cents this week.”
The price of crude oil rose 5% last week, which hints at a coming increase at the gas pump.
According to AAA data, on Monday morning, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Florida is $2.85. That’s below the national average of $3.05.
Locally, the average prices are as follows:
- Palm Beach County: $2.99
- Monroe County: $2.95
- Broward County: $2.89
- Miami-Dade County: $2.89
