AAA says that gas prices are continuing to drop throughout April while doing a complete reverse of what was forecast by the group at the start of the year.

Instead of increasing, AAA says gas prices have dropped to about 40 cents less than they were at the same time last year.

"Given the state of supply and demand fundamentals, gas prices will likely continue on this downward path for the next few weeks," said AAA spokeswoman Jessica Brady. "Pump prices are about 40 cents less than they were a year ago and the price gap is expected to widen."
