Florida gas prices dipped to their lowest level since February with a 9-cent downturn this week.
The average price per gallon on Sunday was $3.45, according to the weekly briefing from AAA — The Auto Club Group.
Sunday’s decline is the latest in a two-week fall in prices in the Sunshine State totaling as much as 17 cents. Drivers are paying roughly $1.44 less a gallon than they were in mid-June when prices hit their highest of the year.
AAA officials are predicting a continued fall throughout the week.
“The oil market finished flat last week, which should enable the state average to continue moving lower,” said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins. “Unless fundamentals shift, Florida’s average gas price should fall into the $3.30s this week.”
