Florida gas prices inched lower last week, the lowest in three years,  as millions of Americans hit the road for Thanksgiving. AAA forecasted nearly 2.8 million Floridians would take a road trip for the holiday weekend, and those that did likely felt thankful for the lower price per gallon! Today Florida drivers are paying an average of $3.01 per gallon of regular unleaded, while drivers in Osceola County are paying less at $2.96.

The average price at the pump on Thanksgiving day was $3.03 per gallon in Florida, but has jumped up to $3.25 per gallon on Monday. Last year, Thanksgiving travelers paid $3.41 per gallon. The price was $3.35/g in 2021 and $2.03/g during the COVID Thanksgiving of 2020.

“A recent drop in oil prices and the seasonal downturn in fuel demand have enabled gas prices to move lower in time for the holidays,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Gas prices should remain low through the holidays, unless there’s an unexpected spike in oil prices or disruption to the domestic gasoline supply line.”

Florida gas prices are on the verge of falling below $3 a gallon for the first time since December 2022. Sunday’s state average was $3.01 per gallon. That’s 3 cents less than last week, 31 cents less than a month ago, and 84 cents less than this year’s high of $3.85/g – recorded in August.
