Gas Prices Decline Slightly

May 13, 2019

Florida gas prices declined an average of 7 cents during the past week. The state average has declined the past nine days for a total decline of 8 cents.

In Escambia County on Sunday, the average price per gallon was $2.65, down a nickel from a week ago. Pensacola metro prices were among the lowest in the state.

Sunday’s state average of $2.71 per gallon is 7 cents less than a week. Year-to-date, the state average has averaged $2.48 per gallon – 11 cents less than the same period last year.

“Stabilizing fuel supplies and lower crude oil prices are leading to cheaper prices at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Recent declines in wholesale gasoline should allow the state average to slip another 5 cents or more in the next week or two. However, May is a very volatile month for gasoline and motorists should not be surprised if pump prices rise again before Memorial Day.”
