AAA: Florida gas prices decline 6 cents


Florida gas prices are declining once again. After reaching a 4-week high of $3.47 per gallon on Tuesday, the state average steadily declined a total of 6 cents by Sunday, June 18.

“Florida drivers are now paying an average price of $3.41 per gallon,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. “Summertime fuel demand is off to a strong start, which will likely contribute to continued volatility in prices at the pump through the next several months.”

Regional Prices
• Most expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($3.59), Naples ($3.50), Homosassa Springs ($3.47)
• Least expensive metro markets – Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($3.17), Panama City ($3.24), Pensacola ($3.26)

Ways to Save on Gasoline
• Combine errands to limit driving time.

• Shop around for the best gas prices in your community.
• Pay with cash. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
• Remove excess weight in your vehicle. Every 100 pounds taken out of the vehicle improves fuel economy by 1-2 percent.
• Drive conservatively. Aggressive acceleration and speeding reduces fuel economy.
