Florida gas prices back to pre-Hurricane Harvey levels

Just in time for one of the busiest travel periods of the year, gas prices across Florida are back down to pre-Hurricane Harvey levels. Tampa Bay gas hit $2.30 per gallon today, while state prices averaged $2.37 per gallon, according to AAA, The Auto Club Group.

"Gulf Coast refineries have completely recovered from the effects of Hurricane Harvey, and are now flooding the market with fuel in anticipation of strong demand during the year-end holidays," Mark Jenkins, spokesperson for AAA, said in a release.

Nationally, gas prices were $2.43 per gallon. GasBuddy.com, a gas price tracker, expects gas prices to remain fairly low as long as demand for gas continues to stay down.
