With the national average gas price averaging $2.93, travelers are paying the highest Memorial Day weekend prices since 2014, which reached $3.65. However, AAA predicts these rising gas prices will not put a damper on Floridians’ travel plans this holiday weekend.

Millions of gallons of gas are on their way to Port Canaveral, Port Everglades and the Port Tampa Bay. The ports are opening and vessels are bringing much needed fuel. Port Canaveral says gasoline, diesel and jet fuel are making their way to Floridians in need. One tanker arrived yesterday afternoon and two more are on the way.

AAA says Hurricane Harvey, which slammed into the Texas coast and is causing widespread flooding, could cause a 5- to 15-cent surge in gas prices across Florida this week.

Hurricane Harvey won’t send heavy rains and winds to Florida, but it will likely push gas prices higher.
