The average price of gas in Miami has risen more than 6 cents per gallon this week, following a national trend that has seen prices increase.
The average price per gallon was $2.29 Sunday, according to GasBuddy.
National average prices are up 3.5 cents per gallon compared to last week.
Nonetheless, the Chevron Station on University Drive in the Tower Shops and 7-Eleven on the corner of Pine Island Road and State Road 84 have gas for less than $2 per gallon.
The cheapest gas in Miami can be found at the U-Gas along Northeast 6th Avenue.
The changes are the result of crude oil prices inching closer to costing $50 per barrel, Patrick DeHaan, a senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, said in a statement.
The prices in Miami on Sunday were 4.2 cents per gallon higher than the same date a year ago.
“The rise in oil has come due to unrest and concern over the political outlook in Venezuela, a major supplier of crude oil to the U.S., due as well to Saudi Arabia's export cut to six million barrels per day,” DeHaan said. “Add on top of it U.S. oil inventories that have declined over 50 million barrels from March and you have a recipe for a continued rally in gasoline prices in much of the country.”
