Average gasoline prices in Florida have topped $2 a gallon for the first time since March, but fears about another surge in COVID-19 cases could head off continued price increases.
The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is below $2 throughout Florida, according to the AAA auto club. Amid a 70-percent decline in demand because of the coronavirus, prices are down $1 a gallon from a year ago and average $1.77 a gallon.
“Florida drivers are observing the social isolating concepts, so driving is about 50 percent of where it is normally,” AAA said.
The price of a gallon of gasoline has hit 99 cents at a station in Kentucky.
