In this section, six indicators are used to present Florida’s fuel sale and fuel price trends: weekly price of regular gasoline, the monthly price of regular gasoline before taxes, Florida gasoline taxes, monthly gasoline sales, regular and total gasoline sales, and Florida certified gallons. There is approximately a one month lag time for the monthly indicator.
The tables in the ‘details’ section of each indicator have more historical data than is presented in the graphical portion. The Energy Information Administration has a comprehensive web
page that details fuel activity in Florida at http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/state/state_energy_profiles.cfm?sid=FL.
Availability of affordable motor fuel shapes our nations economy. Transportation relies heavily on this resource. Until recently, the use of gasoline in Florida has climbed as more individuals
travel more. According to the Energy Information Administration, the number of
gasoline stations in Florida makes up over five percent of the national total.
The Florida Department of Revenue tracks the sales of
and tax revenues from motor fuels. State, federal and additional local option
fuel taxes are the primary sources of funding for transportation expenditures,
including roadway improvements.
