The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Florida was $3.53 on Monday, down 11 cents from a week earlier, according to the AAA auto club.

It was down from $4.15 a gallon a month ago.

Average gas prices in Florida have steadily declined since hitting a record of $4.89 on June 13.

Monday’s average price, however, remained significantly higher than the $2.98 a gallon a year ago.

Ways to save on gasoline:

  • Combine errands to limit driving time.
  • Shop around for the best gas prices in your community.
  • Pay with cash. Some retailers charge extra per gallon for customers who pay with a credit card.
  • Remove excess weight in your vehicle. Every 100 pounds taken out of the vehicle improves fuel economy by 1-2 percent.
  • Drive conservatively. Aggressive acceleration and speeding reduce fuel economy.
