Gas costs have risen across Florida. Will the price increase when the summer season starts?

Gas prices are rising again.

In Miami, prices at the pump are almost 5 cents per gallon higher than last week, although they are still about 7 cents lower than a month ago. In Bradenton, prices are up about 7 cents per gallon. The cheapest gas in the state? North Florida, where the price can average 25 to 30 cents less per gallon than parts of South Florida.

Across Florida, prices are up an average of 6 cents per gallon this week as the summer driving season gets underway (June is just around the corner and school is just a few weeks out).

What the experts say

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy: “With the summer driving season upon us, average gasoline prices have increased in some areas and decreased in others. Most states are seeing prices so far slightly below their 2024 peak, with some refinery issues in the Great Lakes pushing prices there, while other areas like the West Coast have seen notable relief with more on the way. June is generally a month of smooth sailing, as we see gas prices drop in most areas, and that’s a trend that seems most likely for motorists, barring any unexpected problems at the refinery or a tropical storm developing. The national average during Memorial Day was down very slightly compared to last year; after adjusting for inflation, prices fell by about 10 cents per gallon. Not a terrible way to start the summer!”
