AAA: Gas Prices Across the State are Falling as Floridians Get Ready to Hit the Road for Thanksgiving

With millions of Floridians ready to hit the road for Thanksgiving, a new report from AAA shows that prices at the pump across the state are falling.

AAA estimates 2.7 million Floridians will drive more than 50 miles this holiday weekend, with 200,000 other Floridians traveling by other means.

On Sunday, the average gallon of gas in Florida cost $3.46, down from $3.56 at the start of last week.

Across the nation, the average gallon of gas cost $3.67 on Sunday, down from $3.78 at the start of last week.

“Florida drivers may have something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, on Monday. “Prices at the pump are likely to drop through the holiday weekend. Gas prices could ultimately fall 20-30 cents per gallon. The downturn is being driven by strong refinery output, which led to a big gain in gasoline supplies.”

The West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area had the most expensive gas in the state on Sunday, with an average of $3.65 a gallon, followed by Gainesville at $3.57 a gallon and Naples at $3.55 a gallon.

The Crestview-Fort Walton Beach area had the least expensive gas in the state on Sunday, with an average of $3.20 a gallon, followed by Panama City at $3.22 a gallon and Pensacola at $3.23 a gallon.
