How Gas Prices Have Changed in Port St. Lucie in the Last Week


How gas prices have changed in Port St. Lucie in the last week

After a run-up influenced by seasonal travel demand and broadening conflict in the Middle East as well as war in Ukraine, gasoline prices fell just slightly over the past week.

Prices are in line with where they were this time last year. AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross said in a statement Thursday that drivers may have already seen the peak of gas prices until Memorial Day weekend arrives.

Looking to summer months, factors that could potentially influence higher gas prices include extreme heat, higher demand, and storms. Hurricane season, which begins in June, could have an impact on prices at the pump after that, and experts are anticipating a particularly harsh hurricane season this year.
