The cost of a gallon of gasoline fell 17 cents last week, dipping below $4 for the first time since March for most of the Sunshine State – but not for much of South Florida.
While the average price per gallon statewide fell to $3.93, costs in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties remained higher, with gas pump tolls of $4.18 in the West Palm Beach-Boca Raton market, $4.04 in Fort Lauderdale and $4.03 in Miami, figures from AAA – The Auto Club Group show.
The lower costs could be short-lived. Crude barrel prices hit $98.62 Friday, a 4% week-over-week uptick.
