Independence Day gas prices were lowest in 16 years


Florida gas prices reach 15-week highs

From AAA

Although Florida gas prices increased last week, drivers found the lowest prices at the pump for Independence Day since 2004.

"Gas prices remain very low for this time of year, due to the effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on supply and demand," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Retailers raised gas prices last week, in anticipation of strong demand for the Independence Day holiday weekend."

Florida gas prices increased 8 cents last week. The state average of $2.11 per gallon is the highest price since March 19th. Despite the recent increase, drivers are saving an average of 57 cents per gallon compared to this time last year.
