Gas Up Nearly 15 Cents Per Gallon From Last Week

Gas prices spiked by 18 cents in Southwest Florida early last week before finally plateauing over the weekend.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the Bradenton-Sarasota-Venice market was $2.51, 18 cents higher than the previous week, AAA reported Monday. Local prices are now 41 cents above what they were at this time last year. Statewide, prices at the pump averaged $2.53 per gallon, up 13 cents over the week. But the state average has held firm for the past three days. The most expensive gas in Florida on Monday was $2.64 in the West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area. Locally, gas prices range from $2.42 in Punta Gorda to $2.48 in Venice.
