AAA: Florida Gas Prices Sink to Lowest in Nearly a Month, Average Could Dip Even Lower in Coming Weeks
By AAA // October 27, 2020
Drivers are beginning to find sub-$2 gas prices in some Florida cities
(AAA) — Florida drivers get a treat before Halloween, this year. Prices at the pump are falling around the state, sinking to their lowest level in nearly a month.
“Sub-$2 gas prices are beginning to pop up in various Florida cities,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“Pump prices are drifting lower as COVID concerns creep back into the fuel market. Gasoline demand is already 15% lower than this time last year. Meanwhile, fuel supplies remain strong. It’s possible the state average could dip below $2 a gallon in the coming weeks. If that happens, it would be the first time since June.”
Florida’s state average sits at $2.08 per gallon. That’s 4.5 cents less than a week ago and 33 cents per gallon less than this time last year. The state average has declined the past 22 consecutive days, for a total discount of 11 cents.
