  • Gas prices will continue to climb as summer hits home stretch

At this time a year ago, gas prices in Florida averaged $2.18 per gallon and the national average stood at $2.15 per gallon.

Average retail gasoline prices in IL rose 7.5 cents a gallon in the past week, averaging $2.29 on Monday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 4,378 gas outlets in IL.

The prices in Miami on Sunday were 4.2 cents per gallon higher than the same date a year ago. Putnam County rounded out the double-digit increases in the region with a 10 cent rise.

"Gas prices leveled out over the weekend but should climb again this week", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.

Gas prices in Georgia are up slightly - just fractions of a penny - this week, according to AAA.

AAA says higher crude oil prices and strong demand have pushed prices at the pump higher.


The Great Lakes market is the most volatile and AAA reports a 26 cent jump in prices from last week in Indiana.

So far in 2017, average gas prices in Florida have swung from a high of $2.47 per gallon in April to a low of $2.13 per gallon two weeks ago. Gas prices nationwide have averaged $2.32 so far this year.

Anchorage- $2.61/g, up 0.6 cents per gallon from last week's $2.60/g.

"The rise in oil has come due to unrest and concern over the political outlook in Venezuela, a major supplier of crude oil to the USA", says DeHaan.

Events in Venezuela, where anti-government protests follow the most recent elections, will play a big role in where prices go from here, according to DeHaan.
