The average gas price in Florida is lower than it’s been in more than two years, and experts say it will continue to drop. An abundance of oil and changes in driving patterns are helping the decline.
At about $3.20 per gallon, Florida is seeing the lowest price in regular-grade gasoline since July of 2012. Traditionally, gas costs drop slightly as summer travel comes to an end and consumers settle into the school year. But spokesman for AAA’s Florida division, Mark Jenkins, says more factors are contributing to declining prices.
