Gas prices are on their way up again.
The Lundberg Survey of fuel prices shows that gas has increased nationwide by 18 cents over the last two weeks-- that's the biggest jump so far this year.
That same trend can be seen in Florida. However Jessica Brady with Triple A says Florida is not as bad off as California or some states in the midwest...
"The average price of gas per gallon in West Palm Beach is $3.76, it's $3.74 in Miami and $3.73 in Fort Lauderdale. Each of those are up 10 cents from last week and 35 cents from month ago."
The jump is due to a couple of factors-- such as problems at a refinery in Northern California and the high cost of crude.
Brady says not to expect a drop in prices in the near future...
"Unfortunately it does look like prices will continue to inch up. Hopefully after Labor Day, when we start to switch to a cheaper fuel blend, and Hurricane season starts to come to a close, maybe we'll start to see things drop off."
Tucson, Arizona, has the nation's lowest price at $3.18, while Chicago had the highest at $4 dollars.
2008 still holds the record for the year with highest gas prices both regionally and across the country.
