AAA: Gas Prices Continue to Drop in Florida as Holidays Near

Gas prices continue to fall in Florida with Sunday seeing the lowest average price at the pump for the year, a new report shows.

The average gallon of gas in Florida cost $3.00 on Sunday, down from $3.15 at the start of last week and below the national average of $3.16 a gallon.

“Oil and gasoline futures prices plummeted last week, after a weekly fuel report showed strong refinery activity, leading to big gains in gasoline supplies,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group. “About 35 percent of Florida gas stations now have fuel below $3 a gallon. Nearly 10 percent of retailers have prices in the low $2.70s. While prices could bounce around in the coming weeks, drivers should expect pump prices to remain low through the holidays unless oil prices suddenly spike.”
