Gas Prices Rise Over Last Week


Most Jacksonville stations were at $2.06 a gallon Monday.

The regional average fell by just 1 cent from last week, while the national average declined by 1.7 cents down to $2.24 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline, according to GasBuddy, which tracks USA fuel pricing and refining activity.

The most expensive gas price averages in Florida are in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.24), Pensacola ($2.23), and Miami ($2.22).

In Allen County, prices were down 2 cents from last month's average of $2.14 and fell 7 cents from last year's average of $2.19. "While the national average edged lower by a couple cents, nearing its lowest of the summer, 20 states saw average prices move higher, two states saw prices little changed, while 28 saw average prices decline". You might want to make that a priority today - gas prices are probably going to inch back up. The least expensive gas price averages in Florida are in Tampa-St.
