Gas prices in Florida have held steady in recent days according to a new study from AAA.
According to the study which AAA released on Monday, this week started with the average gallon of gas in Florida costing $2.02, the same as it was at the start of last week.
Across the nation, the average gallon of gas cost $2.13 on Sunday, up three cents from the start of last week.
“Drivers may see a slight uptick at the pump this week, due to a small increase in the wholesale price of gasoline,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group. “The increase in wholesale prices was likely driven by continued strength in demand for summertime gasoline. As a result, drivers could see an increase of a few pennies at the pump.”
West Palm Beach-Boca Raton had the most expensive gas in the state with an average of $2.13 a gallon followed by Gainesville at $2.09 a gallon and Port St. Lucie at $2.05 a gallon.
Punta Gorda had the least expensive gas in the state with an average of $1.98 a gallon followed by the Fort Myers-Cape Coral market at $1.99 a gallon and Jacksonville at $2.00 a gallon.
