According to a new report from AAA, Sunday marked the 15th day in a row that gas prices dropped in the Sunshine State.
Over the past two weeks, the average price of a gallon of gas in Florida fell seven cents. On Sunday, the average gallon of gas in the state cost $2.13, down from $2.16 at the start of last week. That is just below the national average of $2.17 a gallon.
AAA expects prices at the pump to continue to drop across Florida.
“Pump prices should tick even lower this week,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, on Sunday. “Many Florida drivers began to see lower prices over the weekend. Considering the current level of wholesale prices, it’s likely the state average will sink to around $2.05 per gallon in the near future.”
The West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area had the most expensive gas in the state with an average of $2.25 a gallon, followed by Ocala with an average of $2.17 a gallon and Homosassa Springs with an average of $2.16 a gallon.
Punta Gorda had the least expensive gas in the state with an average of $2.01 a gallon, followed by Jacksonville and the Fort Myers-Cape Coral area which both saw an average of $2.08 a gallon.
