“Crude oil prices declined last week after recent news of OPEC and its oil-producing allies plan to gradually increase oil production beginning in August,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Initial reports did lead to a reduction in crude oil pricing, but it’s unclear at this point where the crude market will go from here. For now, drivers can likely enjoy a break from rising prices at the pump.”
