Florida gas prices have plummeted to their lowest levels of the year. Sunday’s state average was $3.17 per gallon. That’s 5 cents less than the previous low, originally set back in March, according to Mark Jenkins from AAA.

“Florida drivers are now finding some of the lowest pump prices since December 2022,” said Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Drivers are even finding pump prices below $3 a gallon in some cities. In fact, about 20% of Florida gas stations now have gasoline priced below $3 a gallon. Even more are likely to follow, this week.”

“The seasonal decline in driving demand, coupled with gasoline supply builds and falling oil prices are all contributing to the recent pump price drop,” Jenkins continued. “Expect these low prices to hang around through the holidays, unless oil prices suddenly spike or there’s an unexpected disruption to fuel supplies.”
