AAA: Florida gas prices fell 17 cents in two weeks


Florida gas prices have followed a downward trend through the past two weeks. During that time, the state average declined 17 cents per gallon.

On Monday, the state average price for regular gasoline was $3.70 per gallon. That was almost 20 cents more than what drivers paid on Labor Day last year. 

"Although gas prices have recently declined, Florida drivers paid the highest Labor Day gas prices since 2012," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Where pump prices go from here is unclear because oil and gasoline futures prices are moving in opposite directions."

Gasoline futures dropped by nearly 20 cents last week as summer blend gasoline leaves the market, and expectations are that fuel demand will move lower after Labor Day. Conversely, the U.S. price of oil jumped to a new 2023 high. Friday's closing crude price of $85.55 per barrel was 7% higher than the week before and the most expensive daily settlement since December. The upswing is attributed to reports that Saudi Arabia would likely extend its 1 million b/d production cuts through October, which would contribute to continued tightness in global oil supplies.
