ORLANDO, Fla. — Some good news if you’re hitting the road this Labor Day.
Overnight, Florida gas prices trended downward again, according to AAA.
On Monday, the average fell to $3.52 for a gallon of regular unleaded gas, the auto giant said.
That’s a penny drop from Sunday and an 8-cent drop from last Monday, when AAA reported a rise in state gas prices for the first time in 10 weeks.
Looking at the bigger picture, drivers in the Sunshine State paid about 30 cents more just a month ago — but paid roughly 50 cents less for a gallon one year ago.
AAA reported that the national average for regular unleaded also declined Monday, landing at $3.78 per gallon. That’s down nearly 7 cents from a week ago and $1.23 cheaper than the record high of $5.01 set in mid-June.
But here’s the stat that you’ll probably care most about: If your car is running on empty Monday and you plan to fill up at Florida’s current average price, expect to spend about $53 to top off your 15-gallon tank.
