Gas prices in Orlando have typically tracked below the national average, and as of November 17, the current average sits at $2.99 per regular gallon of gas.
This year has seen a steep difference in gas prices leading up busy roads for the holidays, and drivers across Florida can expect to pay about 40 cents less per gallon this year.
According to Triple A, the state average price for a gallon of regular gas sat at $3.51 one year ago.
The price drop comes as so many prepare to hit the roads, and prices aren’t expected to shift too far as we near Thanksgiving.
