The roads are clear for florists and other deliveries to make their Valentine’s Day destinations, but some sweethearts may be happy with the gift of gas.

The US average for regular gasoline is up to $3.52 a gallon.

St. Louis is below that average at $3.42, but prices have never risen so high this early in the year before.

For florists and other delivery drivers, those costs could be passed on to consumers.

Experts say gas prices of more than $4 a gallon, may not be uncommon.
