Florida Gas Prices Slip Lower

June 11, 2018

Gas prices in Florida declined nearly six cents last week. The state average of $2.80 per gallon is the lowest daily price since early May, according to AAA.

Since peaking at $2.92 on May 25, gas prices have declined 16 consecutive days for 11 cents. Despite the recent discount, motorists are still paying 46 cents per gallon more than this time last year.

The Escambia County area average was $2.81 per gallon. One year ago, the local average was $2.31.

“Gas prices could drop another five cents this week, unless the market suddenly shifts course,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Prices at the pump are still adjusting to the recent drop in oil and wholesale gasoline, due to the potential of increased crude output from OPEC. However, there is still volatility in the market, and pump prices could move higher if OPEC decides against easing production cuts at a meeting later this month.”
