The cost of driving has risen sharply since the first of the year, and AAA Auto Club South spokeswoman Jessica Brady sees gasoline prices heading for a major benchmark.
"Right now, it looks like the prices are going to continue high through the end of this month and into March," she told The Beacon. "It's likely we will see $4 a gallon in the near future."
She said prices at $4 already appear in a few places in South Florida.
At this writing, the average price of a gallon of self-serve unleaded regular gasoline in Volusia County is just under $3.90, according to the AAA, which also reports the average price throughout Florida is $3.88.
