The statement by Ron was: "Today gasoline hit $6 a gallon in Florida."
that is 'today' and 'hit', not consistently and average, which is how they rate it. Ron clearly was speaking of the high price, but showing how high it has gotten. Since they refused to interpret it that way and found the 'average', far from tourist locations, was under $4, they rated it false.
By the way, it is closer to $5 than $4 unless you go to 'discount' stations near me, and none of those are VERY near me, and even they are close to $4.50. But I'm in California, which like SOME AREAS of Florida, is in an air zone requiring the more expensive formulations of gasoline to be sold in order to meet federal clean air standards. The 'average' ignores these peaks and factors in rural areas with no impact by the CAA at all.
