AAA: Florida Gas Prices are the lowest in a Month


Florida's average gas price is below $3 a gallon for the first time this year. The state average was $2.99 per gallon on Sunday. That's the lowest daily average price since December 20th. 

"The state average has plummeted more than 16 cents in the past two weeks," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Plunging temps across the country contributes to lower fuel demand, which normally leads to excess fuel supplies and lower prices. More than 70% of filling stations now have gas prices below $3 a gallon."

Ways to Save on Gasoline

  • Combine errands to limit driving time.
  • Shop around for the best gas prices in your community. 
  • Pay with cash. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
  • Remove excess weight in your vehicle. Every 100 pounds taken out of the vehicle improves fuel economy by 1-2 percent.
  • Drive conservatively. Aggressive acceleration and speeding reduces fuel economy.
