Gasoline price falls again in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WFLX) - -

(WFLX) - Florida's average gasoline price of $3.39 is down eight cents since last week.

Fuel demand continues to falter as weak economies cause consumers to cut back on spending and travel.  "Economic news is not looking good in the long term, and we can expect the market to react to every piece of economic news that comes from the U.S. and Europe in the short term," said Jessica Brady, spokesperson, AAA. "Gas prices continue to decrease as oil prices retreat below $80 a barrel, and this trend is expected to continue for quite a while, unless positive news unexpectedly hits the market."

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.42 per gallon, reflecting an eight-cent decrease from last week.
