AAA: Crude oil price drop should deliver relief from rising Florida gas prices

Gas prices could decline 25 cents or more


Florida drivers could soon find deep discounts at the gas pump, after crude oil prices were slashed on "Black Friday". The crude price cuts were sparked by concerns about the emergence of a new strain of COVID-19 and the implications it could have on future fuel demand.

Friday, the price of U.S. crude dropped 13%, finishing the week 10% lower than the week before. Friday’s closing price of $68.15 per barrel is the lowest daily price since September 9, 2021. During that time, the price of gasoline in Florida was teetering on $3 per gallon. 

"Unless oil prices rebound this week, Florida drivers should begin to see significant relief from the pain at the pump," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "The recent drop in futures prices could result in a discount of around 25 cents per gallon or more. But it’d be unusual for that discount to hit the pumps overnight. Gas prices normally rise like a rocket and fall like a feather. So it could take weeks before gas prices fully adjust to this recent 

Over the weekend, Florida gas prices averaged $3.34 per gallon. That’s 2 cents less than the 2021 high, $1.15 more than the 2021 low, and 90 cents more than this time in 2019. Before this year, Florida drivers hadn’t seen gas prices this high since September 2014.
