Gas prices are up slightly throughout South Florida for the beginning of the week.
The cost per gallon of regular fuel is up nearly one cent this week to $2.68, which is slightly below the national average of $2.71 that is up over five cents from the week before.
Triple A officials says motorists could expect up to a 15 cent increase at the pump in the short term. Prices have the potential of rising even more, depending on how the crude market responds to the latest news of a U.S. missile strike in Syria over the weekend, AAA authorities added.
In Miami-Dade, the lowest cost for gallon of gas is $2.53 at the U-Gas station in Medley.
In Broward, the Rocket Fuel station in Davie is your cheapest option in Broward at $2.49.
