JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
Jacksonville gas prices went up an average of two cents a gallon overnight, ending the monthlong streak of steadily declining prices.
According to GasBuddy.com, from February 19th to March 19th, the price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Jacksonville fell 17 cents from $3.83 to $3.66.
But early Wednesday morning on the 20th, the average price went up to $3.68, ending the streak.
The national average right now is about a cent lower at $3.67.
See the attached chart to see how gas prices have tracked over the last month in Jacksonville compared to the rest of the nation.
Recently oil experts have told WOKV there's a good chance the prices will continue to rise through the spring.
"Traditionally, gas prices rise anywhere from forty to sixty cents a gallon in late March through early May," says expert Patrick DeHaan. "If that happens this year, it'll easily send the national average over four dollars a gallon."
