Florida gas prices steady for now



Florida – Over the past month Florida gas prices have remained steady, but experts are warning that $4 a gallon could be in the near future.

According to the American Automobile Association, the average for a gallon of regular gas in Florida was $3.217 Wednesday, slightly below the average one month ago of $3.230.

One year ago, Florida’s average was $2.353, according to AAA.

Florida’s average price is about 10 cents below the national average of $3.316.

Florida’s highest recorded average price was $4.079 in July 2008, according to AAA.

According to AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins, the cost of crude oil is continuing to surge, and some are warning it could get to $100 per barrel in a few months.

“Crude oil prices are increasing, they’re now more expensive than they were in 2021,” Jenkins said. “There’s a good chance we could see higher gas prices than we did last year.”

According to some South Florida drivers, the rising prices are forcing them to cut down on other spending.

“Definitely, it’s concerning because we are driving every day now. Just filling up my gas tank is like $80 now,” said Carlos Bermudez.
