Florida's gas prices spike higher than national average

AAA: Florida average now stands at $3.63 per gallon

With the rise in gas prices, it's not necessarily the areas with the highest prices that are hurt the most, but those where people drive the most. With the help of Chicago's Center For Neighborhood Technology, Forbes ranked the 10 metropolitan areas that are feeling the most pain at the pump and the 10 low-mileage cities that are hurt the least.

Gas prices in Florida continue to rise and are predicted to spike again later this week.

The state average price of regular unleaded gasoline was $3.63 a gallon, according to AAA. The average price in Florida is now more than 12 cents higher than the national average, which stands at $3.51 a gallon.

Factors contributing to the price of crude oil are the lack of demand for oil and the debt crisis in Europe.
