The difference in pH can be explained by the type of bond and strength of that bond between the oxygen and hydrogen. Since double bonds are stronger than single bonds, these acids would be less likely to give up a hydrogen, which means there's a smaller concentration of hydronium ions, thus, a greater pH. Acids that are more likely to give up a hydrogen would have a greater concentration of hydronium ions and thus, a smaller pH.
