Despite another week of lackluster demand for gasoline, prices at the pump continue to rise, with the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded nationally at $3.75. In Florida you’ll pay about a dime less per gallon at $3.65.
Osceola County drivers are paying a penny less at $3.64, but with summer travel continuing into August, and oil prices trending higher, we’ll likely see prices at the pump continue to rise for now.
Higher gas prices follows a jump in oil prices, which have climbed to three-month high. Wheat and corn prices have also rallied after Russian attacks on port infrastructure in Ukraine.
