As expected, Florida gas prices increased last week, following the expiration of the state's gas tax holiday on November 1st.

The price fluctuations varied by region. In Tampa, filling stations were seen going from around $3.05 per gallon on Halloween to $3.35 by the end of the week. Meanwhile, the the state average only increased 17 cents per gallon last week; rising from $3.29 on October 31st to $3.46 per gallon on Sunday.

"With the reinstatement of Florida's gas tax, the state average gas price has rebounded to its highest level since September 10th," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Last week's 17 cent jump amounts to about $2.55 more to fill an average-size tank of gas. Florida's state average now sits at $1.43 per gallon less than what drivers paid in mid-June. That has drivers paying $21 less for a full tank than they did in the early summer."

Regional Prices

  • Least expensive metro markets – Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($3.29), Pensacola ($3.30), Panama City ($3.33)
