A RaceTrac in St. Petersburg offers gas for $1.99 as gas prices continue to drop.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla — If you need to fill up your car, you might notice prices at the pump are dropping. 

Wednesday's national average for a gallon of regular gas is $2.21 according to AAA. 

In Bradenton and Sarasota, expect to pay around $2.12. It’s even cheaper in the Tampa Bay area, where the average to fill up is $2.06. That's down about 25 cents from just a month ago.

“AAA expects gas prices to continue trending cheaper, with the high likelihood of the national average hitting $2 per gallon before the end of March,” AAA spokesperson Jeanette Casselano said.

That’s already the case at the RaceTrac on Gandy Boulevard in St. Petersburg and at a Circle K across the bridge in South Tampa.
