Pump prices held steady in Florida and Palm Beach County to close out the priciest April since 2014.
The county’s average remained unchanged since last week at $2.86, but is still the highest in the state according to motorist group AAA.
Statewide the average stayed at $2.74, but that’s 10 cents more than a month ago, and 32 cents more than last year.
“Crude prices are about 33 percent more expensive than they were this time last year,” said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins. “Expensive oil means expensive gasoline.”
Sometimes prices vary widely within the same city, so keep an eye peeled.
In Palm Beach Gardens, for example, prices ranged from $2.72 at a Sunoco on PGA Boulevard and Prosperity Farms Road to $3.09 at another Sunoco and two Shell stations elsewhere in the same city, according to GasBuddy.
