Gasoline prices rise slightly in line with the price of oil

Prices at the pump have been pushed up by oil prices.

Prices at the pump have been pushed up by oil prices.

Gasoline prices have risen slightly, with Palm Beach County’s average inching up to $2.23 a gallon for regular from $2.20 a week ago, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

“The price of oil rose $4 last week, which could lead to a total increase of nearly 10 cents  at the pump in the near future,” said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins.

Monday, the national average stood at $2.13 a gallon, up from $2.11 a week ago, and Florida’s average was up just a penny to $2.07 a gallon.

“The national average is likely to inch higher in the coming months as refineries work to keep pace with growing gasoline demand. However, prices remain on target to provide drivers with some of the cheapest summertime gas prices in more than a decade,” Jenkins said.

Prices are approximately 40 cents a gallon less than the same day a year ago.
