Florida gas prices are moving lower again after unexpectedly jumping 7 cents last week, AAA officials said.

The state average has since declined .3 cents after reaching $2.51 a gallon on Thursday. 

“Despite last week’s price hike, Florida drivers are still paying 32 cents per gallon less than they did in the spring,” said Matt Nasworthy, Florida public affairs director for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fortunately, the state average has declined one cent per day since Friday, and could drift below $2.45 this week.”
