Florida’s Month-Long Gas Tax Holiday Started Saturday

October 1, 2022

Florida’s month-long gas tax holiday started Saturday and continues through the entire month of October.

The holiday is expected to save Floridians about $200 million by lowering the price of gas by 25.3 cents per gallon.

The gas tax holiday is not in response to Hurricane Ian. It was approved by the Florida Legislature as part of a broader tax savings package earlier this year.

    Who is monitoring the stations to see if they have lowered their prices? I have seen several that still have the same price as of Friday or even higher prices.

    Call “Price Gouging Hotline” — 1(866) 9NO-SCAM to report stations which have not reduced their gas prices.

    A day late and millions of dollars short. The state of Florida could use all of the tax dollars after Hurricane Ian. Billions and billions of losses. We all need to take the tax dollars saved this month and donate them to relief efforts. When we live in a state with many risks especially during Hurricane season giving so many tax breaks is pretty shortsighted in my opinion. Especially when it’s done for political gain.

    What price drop is this? I don’t think our local stations are aware of this because not a one we saw while out today had dropped a penny over last week. Their just gonna pocket it now!

    All this will do is make the store in Davisville the same price as the ones in Atmore. It’s always way more expensive for some reason.

    I went to Murphy’s on Blue Angel and Tom Thumb on Blue Angel. It seems they didn’t get the message. Their prices have not come down. So, where do those extra 23 cents go, in their pockets?

    I read about it earlier in the summer..find it interesting that it was scheduled the month before November elections..but what the heck…will take advantage of a gas tax break wherever and whenever it is offered!
