AAA says high demand for gas and higher oil prices than past year are driving up prices. The average gas prices had maxed out at about $2.76 per gallon two months ago.

"Motorists should expect a 15 cent increase at the pump in the short term", said Mark Jenkins, spokesman at AAA in Tampa.

The most expensive were the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($2.80), Pensacola ($2.77) and West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.76) regions. AAA said crude is climbing due to the potential of US sanctions against Syria's sponsors, Russian Federation and Iran.

Even though Syria has not exported oil since civil war broke out in 2011, the country receives fuel deliveries from Iran.

Experts believe that part of the reason for the recent gas price climb is because of the new concerns about tension in the Middle East. "The conflict in Syria has sent crude prices to their highest point in more than three years, and as a result motorists are going to see that at the pump".

Seasonal factors in the US also are in play now, said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said that, just as South Africa grieved for Madikizela-Mandela, it was comforted by the profound meaning of her life.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for gas price comparison site GasBuddy.com, said that's the highest national average price since July 2015.

"That could be very close to what we expect this time around", DeHaan said. Prices traditionally start their seasonal rise in mid-February as refiners begin maintenance that enables them to transition to producing more expensive summer-blend gasoline.

As recently as April 9, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said: "As markets have seen concern rise of a possible trade war between the USA and China, oil prices have been hit hard, leading gas prices to dramatically slow their recent ascent".
