TAMPA — Florida gas prices are moving lower. The state average dropped 8 cents per gallon, last week.
The state average on Sunday, Sept. 24, was $3.61 per gallon. That’s 14 cents less than a month ago, 24 cents less than this year’s high of $3.85 – recorded on August 17th.
“The end of the summer driving season has resulted in lower gasoline demand, so far in September,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. “This has enabled gas prices to move lower, even as the price of oil hovers at 2023 highs.”
The U.S. price of crude set a new 2023 high of $91.48 per barrel on Monday, then settled at $90.03 by the end of the week. Meanwhile, gasoline futures dropped nearly 20 cents per gallon, which should allow retail prices to move lower this week.
