Florida gas prices have declined 10 cents in the last 10 days; declining an average of 1-cent per gallon per day, according to AAA-The Auto Club Group.

Average Florida gas price: Sunday - $2.40;Saturday - $2.40;week ago - $2.47;month ago - $2.46; year ago - $2.71

"Florida gas prices declined as anticipated last week, but could move slightly higher again in the coming days," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Refineries are still conducting maintenance, and gasoline demand is at a higher level than usual for this time of year. This has led to lower gasoline supply levels, which pushed wholesale gasoline prices a few cents higher last week. As a result, the state average could soon return to around $2.43 per gallon. Despite the anticipated increase, Florida drivers are still paying 30 cents per gallon less than last year. Which means, they're saving almost $5 on a full tank of gasoline."
