Florida Gas Prices At Lowest In Nearly A Month

October 26, 2020

AAA says Florida prices at the pump are sinking to their lowest level in nearly a month.

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 total discount of 11 cents.

The average price per gallon Sunday night in Escambia County was $2.10.  A low of $2.03 could be found at a Highway 29 station in Cantonment, and $1.88 at an Airport Boulevard station in Pensacola.

“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.”

    While many stations south of 9 mile have been under $2 a gallon for a couple of weeks, and today several are currently under $1.90, while those of us in the Gonzalez and Cantonment are still being pick-pocketed for that extra 15 to 20 cents per gallon by our local stations. It’s shameful.

    Me??? I ride down to the area of 9 mile and University fill-up with fuel and then stop at Chick-fil-a. I kill two birds with stone and I don’t have to line the bank account of those gas gougers in my immediate area.

    Thank you, president Donald J. Trump. If Biden is elected, it will be double that price within two years. The current Democrat party cares nothing about the plight of working families, only ridiculous and radical leftist causes. Re-elect president Trump and keep America strong and energy independent!
