Gas Prices Hit A Four-Year High
The price of gas is the highest it has been in four years, according to AAA.
The average price of gas in Florida for January 2018 is $2.54 per gallon.
AAA Spokesman Mark Jenkins said that as refineries run maintenance checks on the equipment and switch to a summer-blend gasoline, gas prices will remain high.
“As we’re heading into the maintenance season you should expect to see gas prices move higher,” said Jenkins. “If we see gas prices trend a little bit lower here in the next month you know there’s a good chance they might not go terribly lower before we start seeing them increase again.”
Jenkins said this spike in gas prices is unusual.
