Last week, prices at the pump increased 3.3 cents a gallon in the Miami area, according to a survey of nearly 1,700 stations by GasBuddy.com.
According to the gas-monitoring site, a 7-Eleven at 9500 NW Seventh St. and a BJ’s at 7050 Coral Way have the cheapest prices in the county, at $2.07 and $2.11, respectively. The average price in Miami-Dade is $2.25 a gallon.

In Florida, gas prices increased 9 cents over the past week, according to AAA.
“AAA forecasts that gas prices could rise a total of 10 to 15 cents based on the recent surge in crude oil prices,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said.
