Although West Palm Beach-Boca Raton have the highest priced gas in South Florida, Floridians are enjoying paying rock bottom prices for gas, an average of $2.31 – the lowest price in the month of June since 2005 and two-cents less than the national average of $2.33, according to Sunshine State News.
A new AAA study found that in Florida, gas prices are continuing to drop across the state. The Sunshine State News reports that only one other state has had a bigger drop – Indiana.
Still, the Sunshine State News reports that the most expensive gas is right here in Palm Beach County’s West Palm Beach and Boca Raton with Miami following at $2.28 and Fort Lauderdale at $2.27. Statewide, the Tampa Bay area including the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater market is the cheapest with an average of $2.10. Others paying less are Orlando at $2.13 while those in Bradenton-Sarasota-Venice are at $2.17.
How low will they go?
According to the Sunshine State News, prices could continue to drop as they did here last summer. Last June gas averaged $2.35 in June and then dropped again to $2.05 in August.
The Sunshine State News reports that the reason for the drop in gas prices is the dip in the price of oil.
