JACKSONVILLE, Fla – Gas prices in Florida have dropped 20 cents in nine days, according to AAA.
Fuel prices surged after Russia invaded Ukraine -- causing the U.S. price of oil to reach a 2022 high of $123.70 per barrel.
The average price for a gallon of regular is $4.18 after hitting a record high of $4.38, but Florida Drivers are still paying much more than last year’s high of $3.36 per gallon.

AAA calls the oil market volatile after a massive swing in prices last week and this week. The agency predicts gas prices should stay low unless oil suddenly spikes again.
