The national average price for a gallon of regular gas is at a record $4.25. The previous record occurred in July of 2008 when it was $4.17. In Florida the average price is $4.21. Experts are predicting the high prices will be here for a while. GasBuddy maintains we will see over $4/gallon until at least November. And while the cause(s) of the high prices are being fiercely debated, the fact remains that everyone is affected.
