AAA says it doesn’t expect motorists east of the Rocky Mountains to have to pay $3 a gallon or more this spring. Um, okay… According to AAA the nationwide price of self-serve regular gasoline is currently $2.54 a gallon, though the statewide average in California is $3.12 a gallon. Florida currently averages $2.57 per gallon, while Orlando’s current average for self-serve regular is $2.53.
“This wide price discrepancy is primarily due to rising demand for fuel on the West Coast, the region’s limited refining capacity and strict air quality standards and its relative isolation from fuel supplies elsewhere in the nation,” AAA says. The group says prices may still increase elsewhere in the country during the next few months – they just shouldn’t reach California levels.
