JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -With gas prices all the time high for the fifth consecutive day, and diesel prices remaining above $ 5 a gallon, we know that costs can affect your decisions about travel or your business.
The national average for diesel is $ 5.56. In Florida, it’s $ 5.63, and in Georgia, it’s $ 5.21.

The AAA reported that diesel fuel prices rose 87% in Florida last year.
Truck driver Adonis Branch said his car needed 300 gallons, so when he filled it, it was about $ 1,500. But he said it did not affect his salary or job.
“I still have a lot of work to do,” he said.
But AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said it would affect consumer prices.
“With the rise in the price of diesel, that raises the price of things like groceries and, you know, the cost of delivering things to your door,” Jenkins said.
Whether you’re someone who uses diesel fuel on a regular basis for travel, such as a large RV, or for your business, we want to know how the high price impacts you.
