Hurricane season begins with the lowest Florida gas prices on June 1st since 2003. The average price for gasoline is less than $1.90 per gallon. That's 70 cents per gallon less than this time last year.

"Pump prices remain stifled by lower-than-average fuel demand caused by Covid-19," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Although gasoline demand has slowly recovered during recent weeks, it has not returned to a level that would cause pump prices to suddenly return to pre-pandemic levels."

Florida gas prices have held steady during the past week. Sunday's state average of $1.88 per gallon is 12 cents more than this year's low - set on May 6.
