Florida Gas Prices Decline Again After Surprise Increase

Florida gas prices rose an average of 6 cents last week

Florida gas prices are declining again after taking a surprise upward turn last week. The state average rose a total of 6 cents last week, but has now declined four pennies since Thursday.

Florida drivers are now paying an average price of $2.58 per gallon - 2 cents more than a week ago; yet 16 cents less than last month and 22 cents less than a year ago.

"Florida gas prices inexplicably increased last week, despite falling fundamentals like oil and wholesale prices, which would normally lead to lower prices at the pump," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Despite last week's abrupt price hike, Florida gas prices remain 20 cents less than this year's highest daily price. Florida's state average should be heading toward $2.50 per gallon."

AAA forecasts summer gas prices to average $2.70 per gallon across the U.S. and $2.60 per gallon or lower in Florida. Read more about AAA's summer forecast.
