TAMPA -- Gas prices could finally be reaching their peak as the rate of increase at the pump is beginning to stall. In the past week, the average price for gasoline rose 5 cents in Georgia and 1-cent in Tennessee, but declined 1-cent in Florida.
The monthly price for gasoline rose for the fourth consecutive month. Gas prices averaged $2.69 in May, 25 cents more than the April average, and the highest monthly average since November 2014. The average price for gas in May was $2.63 in Florida, $2.57 in Georgia and $2.44 in Tennessee, an increase of 12 cents, 27 cents, 23 cents in Tennessee respectively, compared to the monthly average in April.
