Yes, it’s true gas prices have been soaring lately, but to say that they are “always” higher in Sebastian depends on when “always” began.
If “always” began 10 years ago then I would say that Sebastian gas prices have been average to below average for most of that period of time.
Many times over those 10 years Vero prices were higher while Palm Bay prices were about equal.
But regardless, gas prices are what they are and the only newsworthiness in the story is why this happens and how long will it last.
Thankfully you covered those important parts of the gaseous article.
