AAA: Florida gas prices drop after 12-cent jump


Florida gas prices are moving lower again after jumping 12 cents last week. Rising crude oil and gasoline futures prices contributed to last week's increase, which sent the state average to a 3-month high of $3.27 per gallon on Thursday. 

"Futures prices reversed course last week, enabling pump prices to drop 4 cents in the past three days," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Sunday's state average was $3.23 per gallon and falling."

Gasoline futures prices dropped 15 cents per gallon. Last week, the U.S. price for crude oil declined $5.73 per barrel (-7%). Friday's closing price of $72.28/b was the lowest daily closing price in two weeks.
