ORLANDO, Fla. – There’s some good news for drivers in Florida. According to new numbers released by AAA, gas prices have slipped 2 cents per gallon in the past week.
The agency says the average price for a gallon of regular in Florida is now $2.88, down from $2.90 a gallon last week.
Experts say the drop is due to a decrease in crude oil prices as refineries along the Gulf of Mexico rebound after February’s winter weather that led to widespread power outages.
However, things could change. AAA expects gas prices to be impacted by the container ship that is blocking block part of the Suez Canal, a major waterway for fuel shipments.
