AAA: Florida gas prices holding steady at $2.97 average, plus latest Apopka prices


July was the most expensive month at the pump in seven years

From AAA

Florida gas prices have seen little change during the past week. The state average of $2.97 per gallon is the same as last week.

Florida drivers are now paying:

4 cents per gallon less than a month ago

81 cents per gallon more than a year ago

43 cents per gallon more than August 1, 2019

$45 for a full 15-gallon tank of gasoline

"July was the most expensive month at the pump since October 2014," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Florida gas prices remain elevated due to tightening global supplies, as demand recovers from the pandemic. "Florida gas prices averaged $2.99 per gallon, in July 2021. The monthly average was 89 cents more than what drivers paid in July 2020, and 35 cents more than July 2019."
