“Gas prices have the potential to drop 10-15 cents, based on what happened last week,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “However, refinery maintenance season is fast approaching and could spoil this big break for motorists. Every year – from February to April – reduced refinery output and the switch to summer-blend gasoline normally causes gas prices to rise 30-70 cents. Additional drops in oil prices would help soften the impact maintenance season has on prices at the pump. Expect volatility at the pump as these forces collide.”
