ORLANDO, Fla. — The Thanksgiving travel holiday brought a decline in gas prices in Florida.
Over the course of a week, the cost of gas in The Sunshine State fell about 7 cents.
On Monday, AAA reported the state’s average price for a gallon of regular unleaded at $3.38.
That figure is comparable to what Florida drivers paid one year ago — when the average was $3.34 per gallon.
Here in Central Florida, most counties are slightly cheaper than the state’s average, with Lake County drivers getting the best deal for a gallon at $3.32.
What it means for your wallet — if you’re running on empty Monday, expect to pay around $50 to fill your 15-gallon tank.
AAA reported that the national average for regular unleaded also continued to fall Monday, landing at $3.54 per gallon.
That’s down roughly 12 cents from a week ago and $1.47 cheaper than the record high of $5.01 set in mid-June.
It is about 15 cents more than exactly one year ago when the national average was $3.39 per gallon.
