Even still, the average fill-up costs $4.50 less than it did earlier this year when prices hit their 2019 peak in April.“Florida gas prices increased along-side crude oil and gasoline futures prices last week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Fuel prices rose after weekly supply data showed a dip in crude supplies that was bigger than industry insiders expected. Upward pressure also remained amid renewed optimism over the US-China trade deal and news that OPEC and its allies agreed to cut production at a higher rate than experts expected. Pump prices appear to be trending lower to start the week. The latest wholesale prices suggest a gradual return to the mid-$2.40s for the state average, but volatility remains.”Regional PricesMost expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.62), Sebring ($2.57), Port St. Lucie ($2.56)Least expensive metro markets – Pensacola ($2.37), Crestview-Fort Walton Beach ($2.42), Panama City ($2.45)Florida’s State Average:28th-most expensive state average in the U.S.2nd-largest weekly increase of any state in the U.S. (9 cents; Michigan increased 10 cents)Largest monthly increase of any state in the U.S. (11 cents)Find Florida Gas PricesDaily gas price averages can be found at Gasprices.aaa.comState and metro averages can be found here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Click here to view current gasoline price averages Please enter your comment!

Pat Ashworth, 37, head of learning and development at Co-operative FinancialServices, talks about her work aligning key performance and leadershipprogrammesWhat does your role involve? The key aim of my role is to support the development of a single employeeculture for CFS [formed in April 2002 to bring the Co-operative Bank andCo-operative Insurance Society under common leadership]. This involvesdeveloping a professional, consistent approach to everything from induction andorientation programmes to performance management and leadership development, sothat everyone in CFS is equipped to embrace the future challenges of theorganisation. What are the best and worst things about this job? The best is the opportunity to really do things differently and get involvedwith all aspects of the organisation as we go through major change. The worstis having to say no. What is your current major training project or strategic push? I am developing a ‘Big 5’ suite of strategic drivers to help CFS achieve itspeople objectives. It covers: performance management; leadership development;team development; talent pool and succession management; andorientation/induction to CFS. Its aim is to raise organisational performance, improve bottom-lineproductivity, create a single employment community and develop everyone in CFS– no mean feat. I am working with people throughout the organisation toidentify what the key challenges are going to be over the coming years, so wecan ensure that CFS delivers on its promises. What attracted you to training and development? The opportunity to really help to develop people – and to see the effects ofthat development throughout the organisation over time. What are your favourite buzzwords? Competency is a key buzzword as I am working hard to integrate a newcompetency framework for CFS. How do you think that your job will have changed in five years’ time? The challenge to develop people within a tight regulatory framework willincrease. The learning and development team will move to a moreconsultancy-focused approach as the effects of the Big 5 are implemented, andCFS staff become empowered. What do you think will be the core skills for your job in the future? Adaptability, lateral thinking and the ability to multi-task. Are you good at self-development? I’m becoming better every day. It’s sometimes hard to make the time, but Ido try to step back and see where I could improve. What self-development have you undertaken in the past 12 months? I have become psychometrically trained in some new tools. How do you network? Through working on various business projects, and. I always try to keep incontact with people I’ve worked with. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? I’m quite happy doing what I do, but I suppose a replacement for MichaelParkinson would keep me cheerful. Especially if I could choose my guests –George Clooney might be first on the invitation list. Describe your management style. Encouraging, challenging, optimistic. What is your motto? Doing things differently, doing things better. Pioneering culture changeOn 1 Jan 2004 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
