ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida gas prices fell in the last week, but the decrease could be stopping soon.

According to AAA, the average price per gallon is $3.37.

The U.S. price of oil fell to a new 2023 low two weeks ago, causing gas prices to fall. However, oil prices recovered some of the losses last week and increased 4%.

AAA said gas prices could continue to fall a bit this week before leveling out or even possibly increasing next week.
