Florida gas prices are lowest in five months; state average could drop below $2

Florida’s gas price plunge continued last week. The state average has declined 36 consecutive days for a total discount of 19 cents. It now appears the state average is on the verge of falling below $2 a gallon for the first time since June 10th. 

Florida’s average gas price is:

  • $2.01 per gallon (Sunday)
  • 4 cents less than last week
  • 17 cents less than a month ago
  • 41 cents less than last year

“Demand concerns – related to surging cases of COVID-19 – continue to weigh on the global fuel market, leading to lower prices at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Although US gasoline demand is not nearly as low as it was in April, it remains 9% lower than what’s common, this time of year. Florida drivers should see another round of discounts this week. The state average should slip below $2 a gallon and sink to $1.95 by the weekend.”
