SEBRING — After a decline in gas prices over the last month and a half, consumers will once again be paying more at the pump. During the last 45 days, prices toppled by 18 cents on average. So far, the price has only risen 2 cents as of Dec. 27 causing the statewide average to increase to $2.37 per gallon.
The cause of the increase is the rise in the price of oil, which now exceeds $60 per barrel for the first time since June 2015, according to the American Automobile Association.
