Gas Shortages

Floridians are starting to find that gas stations in the state are running out of fuel. Now that Florida is under a State of Emergency, local retailers are not allowed to raise gas rates significantly higher than what they charged in the past month.

If they do, the retailer must show proof that their price to obtain the fuel has gone up. During the past 30 days, Florida gas prices have averaged at about $2.45 per gallon for regular unleaded fuel. To report suspected price gouging, call 1-866-966-7226 or visit the Florida Attorney General’s website.
