Gasoline is on the up and up – in price
Written by Miami Today on April 2, 2018
Gas prices are guzzling drivers’ cash in Miami, where the cost of a gallon averages $2.69, up 6.9 cents from a week ago, 9.3 cents a gallon higher than a month ago and 27.7 cents a gallon higher than a year ago.
And the increases aren’t over, according to GasBuddy, a tracking service that surveyed 1,690 Miami area gasoline outlets to get at the cost figures.
“The national average finds itself mere days away from rising to the highest level seen in nearly 1,000 days, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for the tracking company.
Gas prices average a bit lower elsewhere in Florida: $2,59 a gallon in Sarasota, $21.60 in Cape Coral and $2.62 in Naples.
