Gas prices reach average of $2.32 a gallon

By Times Staff Writer
Published January 11, 2006

The nationwide average price of self-serve regular gasoline was $2.32 Tuesday, up 15.1 cents since the middle of December, and 55 cents higher than one year ago, according to AAA's daily online Fuel Gauge Report.

In Florida, the average for self-serve regular was $2.38 statewide and $2.32 in the Tampa Bay area.

"Wise consumers will begin budgeting now for higher fuel costs in 2006," AAA said, because prices typically increase in the spring with the start of seasonal maintenance on refineries. AAA said the price of gasoline could approach $2.50 per gallon this year.
