The state average has now declined nearly 25 cents per gallon over the course of a little more than two weeks.

Florida-April 18, 2022: Florida gas prices dropped another 7 cents last week. The state average has now declined nearly 25 cents per gallon over the course of a little more than two weeks.

On Sunday, April 17, the average price for gasoline in Florida was $4.01 per gallon. That's 27 cents less than a month ago, and the lowest price since Russia invaded Ukraine.

"Gas prices have mostly declined through the past two weeks, but don't be surprised if they rebound soon," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "The price of oil jumped 8% last week, on reports that the European Union is preparing to ban Russian oil imports, which fuels ongoing concerns about global oil supplies. The crude increase could ultimately lead to an increase of 10 cents or more at the pump."
