End to Florida gas tax holiday pumps prices back up

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida gas prices increased last week following the expiration of the state’s gas tax holiday on Nov. 1.

The state average increased 17 cents per gallon last week; rising from $3.29 on October 31st to $3.46 per gallon on Sunday, AAA reported. The price fluctuations varied by region.

“With the reinstatement of Florida’s gas tax, the state average gas price has rebounded to its highest level since September 10th,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA - The Auto Club Group. “Last week’s 17 cent jump amounts to about $2.55 more to fill an average-size tank of gas. Florida’s state average now sits at $1.43 per gallon less than what drivers paid in mid-June. That has drivers paying $21 less for a full tank than they did in the early summer.”
