ORLANDO, Fla. – Gas prices have jumped again, making it the most expensive March since 2014.

According to a new report by AAA, gas prices in Florida have gone up 14 cents in the last week. 

Currently, the average price for a gallon of regular gas in the Sunshine State is $2.75. 

The national average is a bit lower, at $2.69 per gallon. 

Florida's gas prices averaged $2.58 per gallon for the entire month of March. That is the highest since 2014, when regular was going for $3.53 per gallon. 

Experts at AAA say the reason for the increase is rising demand and lower supplies due to refineries switching to summer blends.
