Gas prices are continuing their upward march.
Prices are up 7 cents nationwide. And in Florida, prices have increased 25 cents since Feb. 1, according to the car group AAA.
"While recent increases could create concern, motorists should be relieved to know that gas prices are still more than a dollar cheaper than this time last year, and should not reach $3 this year,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a statement.
On Sunday, regular unleaded gasoline sold for an average of $2.31.5 in Florida, up from $2.202 a week ago. At many stations in South Florida, where real estate and cost of living runs higher, the cost is up by more than 10 cents.
