Are you feeling a little pain at the pump?  AAA says that Florida gas prices reached a 20 month high last week with an average  price of $2.47 per gallon. 

Gas prices are 38 cents higher than this time last year.  

You'll find the most expensive gas in Florida in the West Palm/Boca Raton at $2.54 cents a gallon, while the cheapest gas can be found in Pensacola at $2.54.

"Falling oil and wholesale gas prices should push pump prices lower this week," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "However, oil prices have been fickle this year, so motorists should expect continued volatility in the next couple of months as oil prices fluctuate, demand rises, and refineries complete the switchover to more expensive summer blends."
