Gas Prices Fall Except Hendry-Glades

Hendry-Glades Prices Still Higher

LABELLE, FL. -- Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 3.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.92/g yesterday, except in Hendry and Glades county. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.89/g, according to gasoline price website

Average prices in Hendry county are above $4.00 a gallon. At the Handy Food Stores and Shell gas is not $4.04. But travel across the county line to Lee county and gas is $3.89 at the 7-Eleven on Joel Blvd. or $3.94 at the Handy on Joel.

Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 10.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.6 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 9.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 9.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"The only thing I remain sure of with gasoline prices is that things will remain quite volatile the next four to six weeks," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Spot prices, a leading factor in retail gasoline prices, continues to swing wildly from region to region. Last week we saw a refinery fire on the West Coast drive up spot prices nearly instantaneously, an event that could occur in virtually any area. It's these events, the unforeseeable reaction, that gives me reason to say that prices may continue to swing upward and downward," DeHaan said.

    I live in New York and I've received two official looking mailings from this National Reply
    Center. It's in regards to choosing the right Medicare Plan. I will be 65 this year. How do they know this and do they think I'm stupid enough to reply to this nonsense. How can I stop these mailings ? I want nothing to do with them.
