JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Gas prices are down slightly for the third day in a row.
The National average is $4.30 -- that’s down one cent from yesterday. Prices are also down here in Florida and in Georgia.
In Florida, the average gallon of regular gas is $4.31. In Georgia, drivers are paying $4.26.
Let’s take a look at our local counties:
- Duval: $4.29
- Clay: $4.25
- St. Johns: $4.31
- Baker: $4.17
- Nassau: $4.33
This week crude oil prices also dropped back below $100 per barrel -- but a spokesperson for AAA said it will take time to notice a price drop at the pump.
If crude oil prices stay where they are -- gas prices could drop by as much as 20 cents per gallon. That would still be more than a dollar more than a year ago.
