Florida Gas Prices Lower - Hendry Still High
What's With Hendry-Glades Gas Prices?
Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.51/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 6.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 85.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 21.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 21.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 84.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
But check your Hendry-Glades prices and you should see they are still among the highest in the state. Go north to Highlands and prices this weekend were $3.37. Prices in Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio were similarly priced. What's going on with Florida prices and specifically Hendry-Glades?
