Gas prices expected to reach record highs soon

On Thursday, Palm Beach County was the state's only county at or above $4 a gallon. The average shot up six cents in the past week. Statewide, the average stood at $3.92. The peak is expected in late May or early June, and many motorists already have changed their driving habits. Prices could begin a retreat after that, experts say.

GasBuddy projects that prices in the Miami area will peak somewhere between $4.05 and $4.40 a gallon. Palm Beach County's average gas price typically runs about two cents higher than Miami's. [Source: Palm Beach Post]
