AAA said gas prices in Florida are falling fast.

Prices are down even as oil prices remain high.

That’s because the summer driving season is behind us, the auto club said.

AAA also pointed to strong gasoline production.

And the price improvements should continue.

“Gasoline futures logged a second consecutive 18-cent drop, which should signal another round of falling prices at the pump this week,” AAA’s Mark Jenkins said.

The average cost for a gallon of gas in the Sunshine State was down to $3.48 on Monday.

That’s 11 cents less than what Floridians paid just a week ago and about a 20-cent decline in two weeks’ time.
