After rising in recent days, including an eight cents jump two weeks ago, gas prices in Florida dropped last week with the average gallon in the Sunshine State costing $2.25 a gallon, three cents less than a week ago, according to a new study from AAA.
AAA released a study on Monday morning finding, on Sunday, the average gallon of gas in Florida cost $2.28, a jump of eight cents over the past week and 16 cents more than the start of last month. However, this remains more than 50 cents a gallon lower than October when Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle.
