Tulsa Gas Prices Drop In Time For Holiday Travel


Gas prices are about 12 cents lower this year than last, at least for now, Lundberg said.

Since June 1, Florida gas prices have averaged $2.31 for a gallon of regular.

USA gas prices are averaging $2.33 since June 1, which is the lowest gas price average since 2005 when it was $2.13.

The national average for gasoline was $2.23/g from June 1 - August 31, 2016. It's a nickel cheaper than a year ago. "And when travelers spend less at the pump, they are left with extra cash to spend on lodging, shopping, and dining out". The stocks jump resulted in the region's low gasoline prices.

WFLA reported that some people in the Tampa Bay area are finding fuel prices under $2 a gallon, which makes traveling for the upcoming holiday weekend even more enticing for Florida residents.

Motorists are beginning to find prices under $2 per gallon at some stations around the Sunshine State. Jenkins said gas prices should continue to drop in the days to come.

The lower gas prices in Florida are in Tampa-St.

AAA collects data from credit card swipes and direct feeds from 120,000 gas stations nationwide, in partnership with OPIS and Wright Express.

Jenkins said the price of crude oil is often the key indicator. "Oil prices are having a hard time stabilizing amid fears that oversupply will continue dominating market". However, historically, the prices can rise or fall as the holiday approach.
