AAA: Price of Gas Down Again as 2.1-Million Floridians Prepare for Memorial Day Road Trips

On Sunday, Florida drivers paid an average price of $3.41 per gallon.

Florida - Monday May 22, 2023: Florida gas prices are still declining as nearly 2.4 million Floridians prepare to travel for Memorial Day weekend. According to AAA's holiday travel forecast, more than 2.1 million Floridians will take a road trip.

Florida gas prices have declined 31 cents per gallon over the course of the past 30 days. During the past week alone, the state average declined 7 cents per gallon.

On Sunday, Florida drivers paid an average price of $3.41 per gallon. Though drivers in some regions are finding prices in the $3.20s or lower.

"It's looking like Florida drivers will spend a dollar per gallon less for gasoline than they did last Memorial Day weekend," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "The state average should trickle even lower this week. However, even if pump prices do suddenly rise this week, it's unlikely it'd be by a large enough margin that Floridians would change their plans, since most travel plans have already been finalized by now."

Regional Florida Prices

• Least expensive metro markets – Panama City ($3.14), Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($3.16), Pensacola ($3.22)
