Florida gas prices held steady during the past week, AAA reports.
Florida drivers are paying an average price of $3.01 per gallon. The state average is fractions of a cent less than a week ago, yet remains 3 cents more than last month and 90 cents more than this time last year.
“Florida drivers are still finding some of the most expensive prices at the pump in nearly seven years,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“Crude oil prices fluctuated last week, but ultimately evened out. So it’s likely these elevated gas prices will hang around for the near future.”
The least expensive metro markets for gas in Florida include Punta Gorda at $2.94 per gallon, Fort Myers-Cape Coral at $2.96 per gallon.
