Florida gas prices are drifting lower, after reaching a 2-month high of $2.16 per gallon more than a week ago. Prices at the pump declined an average of 2 cents per gallon in the past week.
"It was a relatively uneventful week in the fuel market. Oil prices held relatively steady, but that could change this week," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "The FDA’s approval of Pfizer’s Covid vaccine could help promote higher oil prices, due to its potential of helping fuel demand eventually rebound in 2021. However, the optimism would have to overpower current conditions. The rising cases of coronavirus has caused lockdowns in various cities, and the lowest gasoline demand figures since the spring."
Florida drivers are now paying an average price of $2.14 per gallon. The state average is 14 cents more than a month ago. However, pump prices are 2 cents less than last week, and 34 cents less than this time last year.
