"Fuel prices held steady last week, despite the expectation that 4.3 million Floridians would take a road trip for the year-end holidays," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Although there has been recent optimism surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine, the pandemic's effect on global fuel demand continues to hold pump prices below year-ago levels."
The pandemic led to big swings in pump prices this year in Florida. The highest daily average price was $2.56 per gallon, which was recorded in January. The lowest price was $1.76 per gallon, back in May.
Florida gas prices are now averaging nearly $2.20 per gallon. The state average is a half-cent less than a week ago, 17 cents more than last month, and 26 cents less than this time last year.
