Gas prices jump 14 cents in Florida
Price increase due to higher demand, lower supply, AAA says
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.
