Gas prices across the state are sliding down, particularly in Tampa Bay.
According to AAA, the Auto Club Group, Florida gas prices averaged $2.41 a gallon Monday, down 6 cents over the week, while Tampa Bay gas prices were $2.33 a gallon on average Monday, down 10 cents over the week.
The dip, AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said, might be short-lived.
“The state average could potentially rise a nickel by the end of the week based on recent fluctuations in wholesale gasoline prices," Jenkins said in a release. "Prices at the pump could rise even higher if the price of crude makes significant gains this week.”
Panama City and West Palm Beach metro areas had the most expensive gas on average Monday ($2.55 a gallon). Nationally, gas averaged $2.64 per gallon Monday.
