Gas price drop ending? Middle East to blame?

Gas prices had been sinking leading up to Thanksgiving, but might be on the rise as tensions mount in the Middle East.
 
"Whenever violence escalates in the Middle East as it has with Israel and its surrounding countries, oil prices are sure to increase," Jessica Brady, an AAA spokesperson told the Phoenix Business Journal.

According to GasBuddy.com, The cheapest gas prices around West Palm Beach are averaging around $3.34 a gallon.

It's about $3.22 a gallon along the Treasure Coast.

Florida's gas average is around $3.33 a gallon. The national average sits at $3.42 a gallon, 5 cents more compared to this time last year.
