Jacksonville Gas Prices Drop Below $1.40 At Some Stations
The Jacksonville area continues to have some of the cheapest gas in the state.
According to AAA – The Auto Club, the average price for a gallon of regular on the First Coast is around $1.62, while drivers in the West Palm Beach area are paying the highest gas prices in the state at around $1.95.
A check of WJCT's gas prices page, which is updated by Gas Buddy, shows prices had dropped below $1.40 at several Jacksonville stations Monday afternoon.
At one point Monday, the Shell station at 240 East 20th Street was selling regular for $1.25 a gallon.
Statewide, the average price at the pump dropped a little more than 3 cents a gallon to $1.78 over the past week.
The average price of gas in Georgia also slipped around 3 cents to $1.68.
Extremely low demand due to the coronavirus pandemic is what’s driving prices ever lower, according to AAA – The Auto Club spokesman Mark Jenkins.
