Gas Prices in Florida

Florida Gas Prices ‘Fully Adjusted’ After End of Break

Gasoline prices across Florida appear to have readjusted after a tax “holiday” in October, according to the AAA auto club.

Gasoline prices across Florida appear to have readjusted after a tax “holiday” in October, according to the AAA auto club.

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas Monday was $3.55, up about nine cents from a week earlier and 26 cents above the mark on Oct. 31, the last day of the tax holiday.

The state suspended its 25.3-cents-a-gallon gas tax in October as part of a tax package approved this year by the Legislature.

“It appears that Florida gas prices have now fully adjusted to a recent oil price hike and the reinstatement of the state’s gas tax,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a prepared statement. “Oil and wholesale gasoline prices took a step back last week, which should cause gas prices to plateau.”

Nationally, the average price Monday was $3.77, a penny higher than on Oct. 31. Some of Florida’s highest averages Monday were in the West Palm Beach area, at $3.70 a gallon, and the Gainesville area, at $3.62 a gallon.

Among the lowest prices were in the Pensacola and Panama City areas, both at $3.31 a gallon, according to AAA.
