JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - WOKV oil expert Gregg Laskoski says he expects Jacksonville’s gas prices to continue decreasing for the next two to three weeks.
“We think they could come down another ten to twenty-five cents a gallon over that period,” says Gregg Laskoski with GasBuddy.com
As of Monday, the average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in Jacksonville is $3.52, down three cents from the previous week. The national average price is down four cents from last week at $3.60.
Laskoski says domestic production is high and consumer demand is relatively flat, and that’s a recipe for lower gas prices.
“We still have a relatively weak economy, and that’s one of the things that contributes to very flat consumer demand during the summer season,” Laskoski says.
He says the escalating tension in the Middle East would’ve affected gas prices a lot more had it happened five years ago.
