Tampa, FL – Gas prices remained relatively stagnant last week, falling a mere three hundredths of a cent nationwide. Refinery outages in both Canada and Texas have caused the steady decline in gasoline to come to a halt and even spike in some markets. The Pensacola metro area in Florida saw a 6 cent rise in the average price of gas.
