Gas prices in South Florida dipped slightly over the past week while nudging up about a penny a gallon nationally.
Prices fell 0.3 cents a gallon in the Miami area, according to a survey of nearly 1,700 stations by fuel analyst GasBuddy. That’s 42 cents lower than a year ago and 10.5 cents higher than a month ago. The average price on Sunday in South Florida was $2.28 a gallon.
In Florida, the average price per gallon is $2.19, according to AAA, 2 cents less than a week ago. The Florida average has been decreasing for nearly two weeks.
But the trend will continue to skew higher — though that needs to be put into perspective.
Never miss a local story.
“Even though prices are up nearly 50 cents from this year’s low, drivers are on pace to see the lowest summer gas prices in over a decade,” said AAA spokesman Josh Carrasco.
