Hendry-Glades Gas Prices Still Well Above Average

LABELE, FL. -- Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.34/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.46/g.

Sunday the lowest price in the Hendry-Glades area was $3.59 on State Road 29 South near LaBelle, and $3.47 in Clewiston at the Diamond Shamrock station.

Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 6.2 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 36.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 32.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"The national average has again decreased in the last week, but the decreases are beginning to slow down," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Wholesale gasoline prices rose strongly on Friday which could send prices higher in states with the lowest prices."
