Florida Gas Prices Continue Falling, AAA Says

October 2, 2023

Oil prices remain high, yet prices at the pump are falling fast. Florida’s average price for gasoline dropped a dime last week.

The state average has now declined 20 cents per gallon, through the past two weeks. Sunday’s state average was $3.49 per gallon. That’s the lowest daily average price since late July.

In Escambia County the average per gallon was $3.33, the lowest metro region in the state. In North Escambia, a low of $3.15 was available Sunday night on Highway 29 in Cantonment, while Pensacola prices were as low as $3.05 at a station on East Nine Mile Road.

“Gas prices are moving lower, even as the price of oil remains near 2023 highs,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Now that the summer driving season is over, gasoline demand has declined, but gasoline production is stronger than a year ago. Gasoline futures logged a second-consecutive 18 cent drop, which should signal another round of falling prices at the pump this week.”

The price of oil settled at $90.79 per barrel. That was 1% more than the week before.

    What are you talking about, Brian? We are absolutely using “the abundant oil, nat gas, and coal that we have in this country”. The US produces more oil and more natural gas than any other country in the world. Our coal production has dropped significantly over the last few decades, but considering how horrible coal power is? I’d consider that a good thing.

    I don’t know of any politicians that are claiming they can control the weather. Can you provide an example?

    If they thought they could control the weather they would not be worried about the climate. They would spend all their time arguing over whether to make it rain or be a clear day.

    Still feels like buying liquid gold since we are not allowed to use the abundant oil, nat gas and coal that we have in this country. The reason — because most of our politicans think that they are God and therefore they can control the weather.
