AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said falling oil prices and wholesale gas prices should signal lower prices at the pump this week. However, he said, oil prices have been fickle this year, so motorists should expect continued volatility in the next couple of months as oil prices fluctuate, demand rises, and refineries complete the switch-over to more expensive summer blends.
