Florida - Wednesday January 24, 2024: Florida's average gas price is below $3 a gallon for the first time this year. The state average was $2.99 per gallon on Sunday. That's the lowest daily average price since December 20th.

"The state average has plummeted more than 16 cents in the past two weeks," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Plunging temps across the country contributes to lower fuel demand, which normally leads to excess fuel supplies and lower prices. More than 70% of filling stations now have gas prices below $3 a gallon."
