TAMPA (Florida News Network) -- Gas prices continued their recent declines last week, falling another 4 cents, according to the latest Fuel Price from AAA-South.
The statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.68 per gallon. The national average is a penny cheaper.
Tampa-based Auto Club spokeswoman Jessica Brady says the average gas price for the month of March was 13 cents cheaper than one year ago.
Last year, gas prices peaked in April at $3.93 per gallon.
Brady says barring unforeseen circumstances, Floridians shouldn't worry about $4 per gallon gasoline.
"Although gas prices may drop another cent or two this week, there's a strong likelihood they will increase throughout April," said Brady. "Positive economic news and signs of increased U.S. demand pushed oil prices to a six-week high and, if the momentum continues, gas prices will go right back up."
Meanwhile, crude oil prices continue to tick upward. Last week, oil prices rose by $3.52 to $97.23 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
