Although the weather impacts to Florida from Tropical Storm Gordon will stay in the Panhandle, the after effects could include a spike in gas prices.

W. D. Williams of AAA told ABC-7 that if any offshore rigs are damaged or have to go offline, there could be an increase at the pump.

He said when Hurricane Harvey- albeit a much stronger storm- hit Texas, gas prices jumped nearly 50 cents per gallon in two weeks.

Already, Florida’s statewide average of $2.80 per gallon is the highest the state has seen in four years.
