(AAA) – Florida gas prices are drifting lower as Tropical Storm Sally moves toward the Louisiana-Mississippi coastlines.

Ten crude oil refineries, with a total processing capacity of 2.64 million barrels per day (more than 25 percent of total gulf coast crude oil refining capacity) stand in the path of the storm.

“As of Sunday night, this storm was not having much of an impact on gasoline prices, but that could change this week, depending on the severity of the storm,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.

“For now, it appears retail prices could continue to decline this week, due to the 10-cent drop in wholesale gasoline prices last week.”

Florida drivers are paying an average price of $2.17 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Sunday’s state average was:

• Nearly 3 cents per gallon less than a week ago

• 6 cents more than last month

• 24 cents less than last year

Regional Prices

• Most expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach – Boca Raton ($2.27), Port St. Lucie ($2.21), Sebastian – Vero Beach ($2.20)

• Least expensive metro markets – Punta Gorda ($2.11), Crestview – Fort Walton Beach ($2.12), Tallahassee ($2.13)
