Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Gasoline prices are starting to rise across the country and the oil market is apparently behind the upward movement at the pumps.
AAA's Mark Jenkins says rising oil prices are making it more expensive to produce gasoline. Jenkins says wholesale oil prices are climbing, which is expected to cause retailers to raise prices at the pump.
The Florida average is $2.45 a gallon. That number is 6 cents more than a month ago and 7 cents more than a year ago.
The most expensive gas prices in Florida are in the West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area at $2.58. The Least expensive gas prices in Florida are in Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville at $2.39 per gallon.
