Ready for a road trip? AAA reports gas prices in Florida on the decline ahead of Memorial Day weekend
Florida gas prices are declining as more than 2 million Floridians prepare to travel for Memorial Day.
AAA is forecasting that the majority of those (1.9 million Floridians) will take a road trip of 50 miles or more.
Floridians are currently paying an average price of $2.87 per gallon. That’s 2 cents less than a week ago, and 4 cents less than the highest price so far this year.
Travelers that live in the Tampa Bay area are some of the least expensive markets in Florida with gas costing an average of $2.82 per gallon. While markets up in the panhandle are the highest cost per gallon, at about $3.
