Florida gas prices are declining as 2.45 million Floridians prepare to take a road trip for the Independence Day holiday weekend. Click here to visit the Florida AAA Newsroom to view the full holiday forecast.

On Sunday, Florida gas prices averaged $3.35 per gallon. That's 6 cents less than the week before and the lowest daily average price in two weeks.

"Florida gas prices have fallen about 12 cents per gallon throughout the past two weeks," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Low oil prices have enabled gas prices to remain well below year-ago levels. However, strong demand has created some volatility throughout the past month. Even if gas prices bounce higher again soon, Independence Day road trippers will pay much less at the pump than they did last year."

Florida gas prices averaged $4.54 per gallon on July 4, 2022. That amounts to $18 more for a full tank compared to what drivers are paying now.

Here are some of the more notable historic gas price averages for Independence Day in Florida:

  • 2022 - $4.54 (record high)
  • 2021 - $3.01
  • 2020 - $2.11 (Lowest since 2004)
  • 2019 - $2.68
