Florida Gas Still Higher Than Year Ago Despite Fall
Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 7.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 5.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 11.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"While the national average continues to fall, we've done the math- the yearly average in 2012 is all but guaranteed to set all time record highs," Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "We still stand at $3.63/gal for a yearly average, and gasoline prices would need to average no more than $2.35/gallon for every day left in 2012 for the national yearly average to drop below 2011, something that appears impossible." DeHaan said.
