Florida - Monday September 19, 2022: Florida gas prices declined 3 cents per gallon last week. The state average has now fallen for three consecutive weeks, dropping a total of 20 cents per gallon since August 27th.

The state average as of Sunday September 18 was $3.42 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Florida gas prices have now fallen a total of $1.47 per gallon since mid-June. On Sunday, Florida gas prices averaged $3.42 per gallon. That’s the lowest daily average price since February 1st.

It now costs Florida drivers about $51 to fill an average sized 15-gallon tank of gas. That’s $22 less than what drivers paid in mid-June, when gas prices reached a record-high $4.89 per gallon.

"Crude oil and gasoline futures finished the week slightly lower than the week before, on ongoing concerns that a global recession and potential U.S. interest rate hike could stifle global fuel demand," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "This should enable gas prices to slip even lower this week."

On Friday, the price of U.S. crude settled at $85.11 per barrel. That’s $1.68 per barrel less than the week before.
