Florida - Monday March 11, 2024: Florida gas prices are inching lower after reaching a new 2024 high of $3.46 per gallon on Friday. The state average rose 15 cents per gallon last week. However, by Sunday, it was back down to $3.43 per gallon.

"Strong gasoline demand and the switch to summer fuel contributed to last week's jump at the pump," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Severe weather and power outages at major refinery plants across the US were also reportedly to blame. However, gasoline and oil futures moved lower late last week, reportedly due to uncertainty about whether the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates later this year. This could temporarily cause the gas price hike to stall."

Crude oil futures declined nearly $2 per barrel last week (-2%). Gasoline futures dropped 9 cents.
