AAA: Florida gas prices hit 6-month highs; Apopka’s average price among state’s lowest

Florida gas prices rose 13 cents early last week. Drivers are now paying the highest gasoline price since March.

“Florida drivers are now feeling the effects of Hurricane Laura, which landed in Louisiana almost two weeks ago,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Wholesale prices have increased because the storm hit refineries in the area. It took several days, but retailers eventually increased retail prices due to the added cost. “

Despite the recent price hike, drivers found Labor Day gasoline prices to be the lowest in 16 years. The state average on Monday of $ 2.19 a gallon is 12 cents more than last week and 5 cents more than last month. Even so, pump prices remain 24 cents per gallon lower than they were at this time last year.

“Florida gas prices should start falling this week,” Jenkins continued. “Labor Day is traditionally the last major travel weekend of summer, which leads to lower gasoline demand in autumn. However, due to the pandemic, demand was already unusually low this summer. While pump prices should remain low, it is possible that some volatility will continue over the coming months. “
