Gas Prices Slam Into Reverse

Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-There has been a big change just a day after word of falling gas prices. Gasoline prices are on the rise again.

Tampa's Triple A says the price of a gallon of regular gas rose by two cents overnight after six consecutive weeks of declines.  The new Florida-wide average is up to $2.37 a gallon.

Analysts say oil prices went up, causing the bump in gas prices. For the first time since June of 2015, the price of oil has exceeded $60 a barrel.  A pipeline explosion in Libya and pipeline troubles in the North Sea are behind the oil price jump.

The most expensive gas prices in Florida are in West Palm Beach at $2.51.  The lowest gas prices are in Tampa/St. Pete at $2.29.
