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.
