Palm Beach County gasoline prices stable, but get ready for the run-up!

Gasoline prices are down slightly.

Gasoline prices are down a penny from a week ago.

Enjoy this week’s gasoline prices, because the spring run-up is forecast to start any day now.

Gasoline prices are relatively flat this week, with Palm Beach County’s average dipping to $2.45 for a gallon of regular Monday from $2.46 a week ago, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

Florida’s average fell to $2.27 from $2.28 a week ago.

The least expensive gas found locally is $2.19 a gallon at 7-Eleven, 1001 N. Military Trail and Belvedere Road in suburban West Palm Beach, according to GasBuddy.com

“With refinery maintenance and turnarounds beginning across the country, we’ll likely see a draw down on winter gasoline stocks, leading the national average to rise in the week ahead,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.

Throughout the past five years, gas prices rose 35 to 70 cents from February to Memorial Day, and motorists should expect the same this year, AAA said.
