AAA: Florida gas prices averaging 6 cents less than last week

 Florida gas prices tumbled last week, but could rise again in the coming days, according to AAA – The Auto Club Group

Geopolitical tensions and a potential thaw in the U.S.-China trade war caused crude prices to increase late last week. 

  • Florida's average price for gasoline has declined the past 10 consecutive days, for a total discount of 9 cents.
  • Florida drivers are paying an average of $2.42 per gallon for regular unleaded.
  • Sunday's state average is 6 cents less than a week ago, 2 cents more than last month, and nearly 40 cents less than this time last year.
  • Crude oil finished the week at $54.70 per barrel - an increase of nearly $2 per barrel compared to the week before. 

"Drivers saw significant savings at the pump compared to a couple weeks ago," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA - The Auto Club Group. "However, the state average could potentially rise a nickel by the end of the week, based on recent fluctuations in wholesale gasoline prices. Prices at the pump could rise even higher if the price of crude makes significant gains this week."
