Florida gas prices this week are the lowest summer prices in two years, according to AAA, the Auto Club Group.

State gas prices averaged $2.51 a gallon Monday, down 6 cents over the week. Tampa Bay gas prices were $2.43 Monday, down 7 cents from last week.

"So far this summer, Florida drivers are paying nearly 20 cents per gallon less than last summer," said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. "As we approach the end of summer driving season, gas price hikes should be few and far between."

Nationally, gas averaged $2.71 a gallon.
