AAA: Gas Prices in Florida Falling for the Moment But Could Rise as EU Readies Russian Oil Ban

Florida gas prices dropped, on average, seven cents last week, a new report from AAA shows though that could soon change.

The state average has now declined nearly 25 cents per gallon over the course of a little more than two weeks.

On Sunday, the average price for gasoline in Florida was $4.01 per gallon. That’s 27 cents less than a month ago, and the lowest price since Russia invaded Ukraine. The national average stood at $4.08 a gallon on Sunday.

“Gas prices have mostly declined through the past two weeks, but don’t be surprised if they rebound soon,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group. “The price of oil jumped 8 percent last week, on reports that the European Union is preparing to ban Russian oil imports, which fuels ongoing concerns about global oil supplies. The crude increase could ultimately lead to an increase of 10 cents or more at the pump.”

The West Palm Beach and Boca Raton market had the most expensive gas in Florida with an average of $4.23 a gallon followed by Fort Lauderdale at $4.11 a gallon and Miami at $4.09 a gallon.

The Crestview-Fort Walton Beach market had the least expensive gas in Florida at $3.84 a gallon followed by Pensacola at $3.86 a gallon and the Melbourne-Titusville area at $3.89 a gallon.
