Florida Gasoline Prices Are The Lowest Since February, Says AAA

TAMPA, Fla., (June 10, 2024) — Florida gas prices are now the lowest since February. The state average has steadily declined the past 17 consecutive day – dropping a total of 25 cents, during that time.

At first, gas prices gradually declined about 1-cent per day for about a week. Then discounts accelerated, dropping 19 cents in the past nine days.

Sunday‘s state average was $3.30 per gallon. That’s the lowest daily average price since February 28th. Visit GasPrices.AAA.com for updated state and local average gas prices.

Florida’s average gas price is now 15 cents less than a week ago, 22 cents less than a month ago, and 9 cents less than this time last year.

Faith Based Events

“Floridians and summer visitors will be pleasantly surprised when they go to fill up the gas tank this week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gas prices are the lowest in several months because of weakness in the oil and gasoline futures markets.”

Through most of March and April, U.S. oil prices ranged from $80-85 per barrel. However, during the past three weeks, crude prices dropped a total of 6 percent. Friday‘s closing price was $75.53 per barrel – down almost $5/b from three weeks ago.

Oil analysts at OPIS attribute the weakness in the petroleum markets to a stronger dollar and better-than-expected U.S. employment data, which raised concerns that the Federal Reserve could delay an interest rate cut. The market believes this would stall fuel demand growth. Additionally, analysts attribute oil price losses to the recent agreement between OPEC and its allies to gradually relax some voluntary output cuts later this year. Doing so could strengthen global fuel supplies.
