Tampa, FL – Gas prices declined for the 11th consecutive day Sunday; falling 4 cents in Florida, 6 cents in Georgia, and 5 cents in Tennessee.
“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.”
