Gas Prices
Florida gas prices were drifting lower while Hurricane Sally's attack on the gulf coastline. Ten crude oil refineries, with a total processing capacity of 2.64 million barrels per day (more than 25 percent of total gulf coast crude oil refining capacity) stood in the path of the storm.

"The storm did not have much of an impact on gasoline prices,"said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "For now, it appears retail prices could continue to decline this week, due to the 10-cent drop in wholesale gasoline prices last week."

Florida drivers are paying an average price of $2.17 per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. Sunday’s state average was:

  • Nearly 3 cents per gallon less than a week ago
  • 6 cents more than last month
  • 24 cents less than last year
