Gas Lower Again - Hendry-Glades Still Highest

LABELLE, FL. -- Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 3.8 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.62/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61/g.

But in Hendry and Glades county, Florida prices still remain higher than Florida averages. Average price is $3.79 with the lowest price at $3.73 at the Circle K on State Road 29 South. Lower prices are found in Fort Myers as usual.

Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 30.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 19.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 10.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 28.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"Gas prices in March came in like a lion and are going out like a lamb," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "For the first time in a decade gasoline prices are going to be lower at the end of March than the beginning. Essentially what we're seeing here this month is perhaps the largest monthly decrease ever during the month of March- a month that has almost always seen prices finishing the month substantially higher than where they entered," DeHaan said.
