AAA says gas prices are down 10 cents per gallon over last year, but drivers could see an increase at the pump of 5-10 cents this week, just in time for Thanksgiving travel.
“Even if gas prices do rise this week, a 5-10 cent increase is not likely to cause Floridians to cancel their travel plans,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
“If the state average returns to $2.45 per gallon, it’d be the same price motorists paid during last year’s holiday. That’s actually the same price Floridians paid last month – when many people were deciding what their travel plans would be for the holiday. However, if Florida’s average gas price remains less than $2.45, Thanksgiving travelers in Florida would be paying the lowest gas prices for the holiday in three years.”
Florida drivers are currently paying an average of $2.36 per gallon.
