Gas prices in the Miami area are up 1.5 cents over the last week, according to a survey of nearly 1,700 stations by GasBuddy.com.
Prices at the pump averaged $2.14 on Sunday in Miami-Dade. Despite the slight increase, that’s still nearly 40 cents lower than prices the same day a year ago.
In Florida, gas prices rose a penny from a week ago, with the average price at $2.07, according to AAA.
“Even though gas prices currently remain volatile,” said AAA spokesman Josh Carrasco, “drivers are saving $4-$9 every time they fill up their tanks compared to last year.”
