Palm Beach County gas prices dropping, and trend is expected to continue
Motorists are enjoying lower gasoline prices.
Palm Beach County’s average price for a gallon of regular gasoline stands at $2.30 Tuesday, down from $2.34 a week ago and $2.38 a month ago, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.
Gas prices have been inching downward for the last 11 days, AAA said, due to an abundance of crude oil in the global market.
Both the national and state average dropped to $2.15 a gallon Tuesday.
If that makes you jealous, don’t despair. There are stations in Palm Beach County selling gas priced well below $2.15 a gallon.
At J & A, 4734 S. Military Trail and Melaleuca Lane, suburban Lake Worth, regular is just $2.04 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.com.
Regular is $2.05 at RaceTrack at 3032 Lake Worth Road and Congress Avenue and 7-Eleven at 4774 S. Military Trail and Melaleuca, also both in suburban Lake Worth.
At Citro, 2765 W. Forest Hill Blvd. in suburban West Palm Beach, regular is $2.07 a gallon.
Gas Buddy senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said the trend is expected to continue.
“While all eyes should remain on OPEC’s reaction and coming meeting, motorists will likely continue to see the national average falling this week, catching up to the fall in oil prices, which now have taken oil to the lowest level since March,” DeHaan said.
