Nonprofit group partners with Florida gas station to lower price to $2.38
Americans for Prosperity-Florida formed a partnership with a Florida gas station to provide gas for $2.38 a gallon on Friday.
The BP station in Pensacola featured the sale from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., lowering its price for regular, unleaded gas from $3.61. No RVs or gas cans were allowed, and customers were served on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The federal government’s top-down spending policies and burdensome regulations have led to skyrocketing costs, the highest levels of inflation in four decades, and supply chain crises,” the nonprofit group wrote in a press release. “The Sunshine State, its communities, and its businesses are feeling the impact as everyday goods have become significantly more expensive.”
NEW RECORD: GAS PRICES DROP FOR 70 STRAIGHT DAYS
Florida gas prices are down 20 cents from the national average of $3.86, where gas prices have dropped significantly since June. The state’s highest average price record came in June at $4.89.
