JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Gas prices in Florida rose by 12 cents per gallon last week, according to AAA.

AAA said on Monday that the state average jumped from $3.46 per gallon on Monday, Nov. 7 to $3.58 on Thursday, Nov. 10, which was the highest daily average price since Sept. 1. However, the state average then decreased by 2 cents by the weekend with Sunday’s average reported as $3.56 per gallon.

“It appears that Florida gas prices have now fully adjusted to a recent oil price hike and the reinstatement of the state’s gas tax,” said AAA spokesperson Mark Jenkins. “Oil and wholesale gasoline prices took a step back last week, which should cause gas prices to plateau.”

Since Nov. 1, the state’s average gas price jumped by as much as 29 cents per gallon.

Ways to Save on Gasoline

  • Combine errands to limit driving time.

  • Pay with cash. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
