Florida Gas Prices Jump 12 Cents Last Week

Florida gas prices jumped 12 cents per gallon last week. The state average increased from $3.46 per gallon last Monday to $3.58 on Thursday.

TAMPA, Fla. – Florida gas prices jumped 12 cents per gallon last week. The state average increased from $3.46 per gallon last Monday to $3.58 on Thursday.

However, the state average then slipped 2 cents by the weekend. Sunday’s state average was $3.56 per gallon.

“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,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Oil and wholesale gasoline prices took a step back last week, which should cause gas prices to plateau.”

Since November 1st, Florida’s state average gas price jumped by as much as 29 cents per gallon.

Last week’s high of $3.58 per gallon was the highest daily average price since September 1st.
