Gas prices continue to dribble downward, dropping another 3.7 cents per gallon in the Miami area in the past week.

The average Miami price is $2.03 a gallon, according to tracker gasbuddy.com, which surveyed nearly 1,700 stations. Lowest price in the area: $1.86 at a BJ’s in the 7000 block of Coral Way.

The average price in Florida, according to AAA, is $1.91. Gas is even cheaper in some parts of the state: $1.89 in Sarasota and Cape Coral, for example.

Nationally, the price per gallon fell to $1.89 a gallon, down from $1.96 a week ago.

The dropping prices resulted in an outrageous gas-price war in Michigan, where the price briefly dropped to 47 cents a gallon.

“Oil keeps sinking lower, making the cost to produce gasoline cheaper by the day,” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said. “Prices have dropped nearly a full cent every day for the past 11 days.”
