Storms Impacting Florida Gas Prices

Welcome to the latest update on gas prices in Florida! If you’ve been keeping an eye on the pump, you may have noticed a slight decrease in prices recently. After hitting a new high for 2024, Florida’s gas prices have dipped to an average of $3.43 per gallon.

Wondering what led to this change? Let’s break it down into three key points:

  • Strong gasoline demand and the switch to summer fuel contributed to last week’s price increase.
  • Severe weather and power outages at major refinery plants across the US also played a role in the spike.
  • Uncertainty about potential interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve caused gas and oil futures to drop, easing some pressure on prices.

Looking ahead, the decrease in crude oil futures and gasoline futures suggests that we may see some relief in gas prices, at least for the time being. Currently, Brent and WTI crude oil prices stand at $83.07 and $78.32 per barrel, respectively.

In terms of local prices, West Palm Beach-Boca Raton leads the pack with an average of $3.60 per gallon, while Panama City, Crestview-Fort Walton Beach, and Pensacola offer the cheapest fuel options.

Nationally, the average price for a gallon of gas is $3.39 this week. Keep an eye on the pump for any further changes!
