The state average is 6 cents less than a week ago
Florida gas prices dropped an average of 6 cents during the past week. After shooting up to $2.50 per gallon 11 days ago, the state average is now $2.44 and falling.
"Oil prices are essentially back down to their previous levels before the drone attacks in Saudi Arabia," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. "The belief that Saudi Arabia’s crude infrastructure could recover quickly has eased market concerns of an extended supply interruption. The lower oil prices, combined with rising gasoline supplies, is keeping downward pressure on prices at the pump. The state average could trickle lower this week."
The attacks on Saudi Arabia oil facilities caused the price of crude to skyrocket from $54.85/b to $62.90/b on September 16. On Friday, crude settled at $55.91 per barrel.
