Gas Prices in Florida Continue to Drop With AAA Expecting Them to Go Lower

AAA released a report this week which shows gas prices in Florida continue to drop.

The week began with the average gallon of gas in Florida costing $3.28, down from $3.39 at the start of last week and the lowest average in the Sunshine State since the end of October when the state gas tax holiday ended. The national average stood at $3.41 a gallon.

“Florida gas prices have plunged 30 cents in the past three weeks, due to low oil prices and strong gasoline supplies,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group. “The downward momentum should continue this week. Unless fundamentals change, the state average could drift below $3.20 per gallon by next weekend.”

The West Palm Beach-Boca Raton area had the most expensive gas in the state with an average of $3.50 a gallon followed by Gainesville at $3.45 a gallon and Naples at $3.41 a gallon.

Pensacola had the least expensive gas in the state with an average of $3.01 a gallon followed by both the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach area and Panama City at $3.02 a gallon.
