"Illinois gas prices have fallen about 7 cents per gallon throughout the past two weeks," said Molly Hart, spokeswoman AAA - The Auto Club Group. "Low oil prices have enabled gas prices to remain well below year-ago levels. However, strong demand has created some volatility throughout the past month.
