Gas Prices Here Tumble Eleven Days In A Row

By on September 12, 2016 in WNDB News


Daytona Beach, FL-Gas prices at the pump here have dropped for eleven consecutive days according to AAA in Florida. That trend is repeated statewide according to AAA.

The price for a gallon of self-serve regular unleaded at the pump in the Daytona Beach area now is $2.17. A week ago that same gallon of gas would set you back $2.21. A year ago that gallon of gas here cost $2.20.

The Florida average price for the same gallon of gas is $2.18.

“Gas prices immediately began their seasonal downward trend at the beginning of September,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Refineries are entering maintenance season as they begin the switch to winter-blend gasoline. This fuel has fewer additives, making it cheaper to produce than summer-blend gasoline, which leads to lower gas prices. Gas prices should follow a downward trend through the rest of the year, unless there are refinery issues or if oil prices surge.”
