At this time a year ago, gas prices in Florida stood at $2.32 per gallon on average.
AAA Northeast says its weekly survey on Monday found that the price of regular unleaded gas fell to an average $2.52 per gallon.
The most expensive gas price averages in Florida are in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.52) and Miami ($2.50). It was also just before Labor Day weekend, as Florida residents kept their eyes peeled on Hurricane Irma's forecast path.
"Gulf Coast refineries have completely recovered from the effects of Hurricane Harvey, and are now flooding the market with fuel in anticipation of strong demand during the year-end holidays", Jenkins said.
Mark Jenkins, a spokesman for AAA and the Auto Club Group, said he expected gas prices to remain low even as tens of millions of Americans get ready to hit the roads for the holidays.
That's nine cents above the national average of $2.43 per gallon.
Statewide, prices at the pump averaged $2.38 on Sunday, down 3 cents over the week and the lowest since August 30.
Next is Hardin County at $2.15 followed by Hancock $2.181, Allen $2.182, Mercer and Putnam $2.197, Logan $2.22 and Van Wert County at $2.30.
East Coast and Midwest states are seeing the largest drops in gas prices - as much as six cents, while a small number of states have seen increases: in (+11 cents), MI (+8 cents), OH (+4 cents). "It's not as low as it was previous year, but still fairly reasonable, the strong economy and high consumer confidence", said Grant. "As long as demand for gasoline continues to weaken, gasoline inventories will continue growing, and it'll be the gift that keeps on giving".
