MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Florida drivers are getting a pre-Halloween treat as the price of gas continues to fall. Currently, prices at the pumps have sunk to their lowest level in nearly a month.
“Sub-$2 gas prices are beginning to pop up in various Florida cities,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Pump prices are drifting lower as COVID concerns creep back into the fuel market. Gasoline demand is already 15% lower than this time last year. Meanwhile, fuel supplies remain strong. It’s possible the state average could dip below $2 a gallon in the coming weeks. If that happens, it would be the first time since June.”READ MORE: 'Once In A Lifetime Event': Florida Man Spots 5 Elusive Florida Panthers In Single Day, 4 At The Same Time
