pump prices have climbed in recent weeks
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida gas prices are still hovering around 10-month highs. Monday’s state average of $2.30 per gallon, is fractions of a penny higher than last week.
“Florida drivers are still paying less money at the pump than they did this time last year, but pump prices have certainly climbed in recent weeks,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“The price hikes reflect the gains made in crude oil prices, which have been propped up by optimism that Covid-19 vaccines will eventually lead to more global fuel consumption.”
Florida’s state average of $2.30 per gallon is slightly higher than last week and 10 cents more than a month ago.
Despite that, drivers are paying 23 cents less than this time last year.
