In Tampa Bay, the counties are close together for dollar per gallon, but there is a price range. Costs at the pump are between $3.43 in Manatee and Pasco counties, and up to $3.51 in Citrus County.
AAA reported the national gas prices are declining alongside a decrease in gas demand, and domestic gasoline stock increased.
“Increasing supply and falling gasoline demand have contributed to pushing pump prices lower,” AAA reported. “As demand remains low and stocks grow, drivers will likely continue to see pump prices decline ahead of Thanksgiving.”
