Drivers will likely see another round of discounts this week

From AAA

Florida gas prices declined for the 15th consecutive day, Sunday. During the time the state average declined a total of 7 cents.

Earlier this month, gas prices averaged around $2.20 per gallon. Now, Florida drivers are paying an average price of $2.13. The state average is nearly 4 cents less than a week ago, and 36 cents less than this time last year.

"Pump prices should tick even lower this week," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Many Florida drivers began to see lower prices over the weekend. Considering the current level of wholesale prices, it's likely the state average will sink to around $2.05 per gallon in the near future."
