AAA: Gas Prices in Florida Slightly Increased at the Start of November

With November here and holiday travel season now on the horizon, gas prices rose slightly in Florida over the past week according to a study from AAA released on Monday.

On Sunday, the average gallon of gas in Florida cost $2.44, up from $2.40 from the week before. This is 20 cents lower than this time last year and below the national average which stood at $2.61 a gallon on Sunday.

Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, weighed in on Monday.

“Although the state average has seesawed since the summer, it has mostly held between $2.40-$2.50 since July,” said Jenkins. “Drivers could see the state average rise a few pennies this week, based on recent adjustments in the price of wholesale gasoline.”

The West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area had the most expensive gas in the state with an average of $2.56 a gallon in that market followed by Panama City at $2.51 a gallon and Gainesville at $2.48 a gallon.

The Pensacola and Punta Gorda areas had the least expensive gas in Florida with prices averaging $2.40 a gallon in both markets followed by Orlando at $2.41 a gallon.
