Florida Gas Prices Decline

September 30, 2019

Florida gas prices dropped an average of 6 cents during the past week. After shooting up to $2.50 per gallon 11 days ago, the state average is now $2.44 and falling.

The average price per gallon Sunday night in Escambia County was $2.45. Four gas stations in Cantonment were at $2.36.

“Oil prices are essentially back down to their previous levels before the drone attacks in Saudi Arabia,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The belief that Saudi Arabia’s crude infrastructure could recover quickly has eased market concerns of an extended supply interruption. The lower oil prices, combined with rising gasoline supplies, is keeping downward pressure on prices at the pump. The state average could trickle lower this week.”

    “…….The average price per gallon Sunday night in Escambia County was $2.45. Four gas stations in Cantonment were at $2.36……..”

    Speculation drove up the prices at the pump. There was never a “real reason” for the sudden increase. And yet, some stations still havent found a way to return prices to the $2.29 average prior to the overnight increases. Somebody, somewhere, has to be excited at all the new found money in their bank account from gouging the consumers these past two weeks.
