Tallahassee, FL - "A little ridiculous, I use to be able to fill up my gas tank with 20 bucks," said Ellie Vazquez, a Tallahassee Resident. "Now, I'm like going to 40."

Prices at the pump have gone up, but it will not stop spring breakers.

"I still see people on the road in huge numbers," said Stephen Terry, a Tallahassee Resident. "It's enough to hurt, but it's not enough to stop."

"It's not going to stop me from Spring Break I'm going to go to Miami," said Vazquez. "Hopefully, these gas prices will go down."

But experts say, the price of gas is not going down anytime soon.

According to AAA, the cost of a gallon of gas will peak at about $3.95 per gallon by early April.

The average price of a regular gallon of gas in Florida is $3.88 and in Georgia it is $3.76.

Florida tops the national average by 10 cents per gallon.

"I do a lot of traveling," Addision Aronold, a Valdosta Resident. "I do not let gas stop me from doing that because it's always going to go up and down."
