What is the cheapest and quickest way to get from West Palm Beach to Tampa?

It's 200 miles. Takes about 3 and 1/2 hours by car. Hitchhiking would be cheap, but not quick. A Lear jet would be quick, but not cheap. I've seen flights for $157. Assuming you're not an ultra-marathoner and your mother can't drive you, take the Greyhound bus.
