Tampa, Florida -- Let's face it...even though gas prices are falling, they are still too high!
The average price for a gallon of gas on Friday morning hit about $3.68 in Tampa Bay according to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report. That's 10 cents less than one week ago and 20 cents less than one month ago.
AAA's Jessica Brady said earlier this week, "Since the start of the year, 2012 broke daily, weekly, and monthly records for the highest price averages at the pump, but now the tables have turned and prices are below last year's level. This is welcomed news to motorists who heard rumors of $5 to $8 a gallon gasoline by summertime. While there's always the possibility prices will climb back up, in the short term, gas prices are expected to decrease further as we enter May. If gas prices do continue to fall throughout the month of May, we could definitely see an increase in the number of Americans traveling for the Memorial Day holiday weekend."
We decided to we'd take advantage of a Friday morning...and a company gas card...to help out a couple of Tampa drivers at the pump.
During our 5am hour, we filled up Jorge Moreno's car, saving him $61.95!
