A new report from AAA shows gas prices are continuing to fall across Florida in the final days of September.
AAA released a report on Sunday showing the average gallon of gas cost $2.10 at the start of this week, down three cents from the start of last week and below the national average of $2.19 a gallon.
“Gas prices are following their seasonal trend of declining during the fall,” said Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group. “With summer over and school back in session, Americans typically begin to cutback on road trips. The combination of lower fuel demand and strong gasoline supply levels is keeping downward pressure on prices at the pump.”
The West Palm Beach – Boca Raton area had the most expensive gas in the state at $2.23 a gallon followed by Port St. Lucie at $2.16 a gallon and Panama City at $2.15 a gallon.
Punta Gorda had the least expensive gas in the state with an average of $1.97 a gallon followed by Orlando at $2.04 a gallon and Jacksonville at $2.05 a gallon.
