AAA: Florida gas prices rise 8 cents

Global supply concerns keep upward pressure on prices

Posted

Florida gas prices averaged $4.18 per gallon on Sunday. The state average is 8 cents more than a week ago and $1.40 per gallon more than this time last year.

"Florida drivers are finding the most expensive prices at the pump in four weeks," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Global supply concerns are keeping upward pressure on oil prices, as many countries look to limit the import of Russian oil. The global crude oil market remains an important issue for motorists, as oil prices account for more than 50% of what drivers pay at the pump. Oil prices have ping-ponged dramatically since Russia invaded Ukraine and that volatility is likely to continue through the summer travel season."

The U.S. price for a barrel of oil advanced 3% last week.  Friday's closing settlement of $104.69 per barrel is $2.62 per barrel more than the week before, yet $1.85 per barrel less than two weeks ago.
