Fuel prices at AAFES stations throughout Europe will fall sharply for the third straight week on Saturday, dropping between 7.5 cents and 15.7 cents a gallon in many locations.

And the slide in prices might not end there.

Regular unleaded will fall 7.5 cents a gallon to $4.08 a gallon in Germany, the only country where that grade of gasoline is sold. Midgrade unleaded will drop 7.6 cents a gallon in Germany and the United Kingdom, and 9.5 cents a gallon in the Netherlands, according to an Army and Air Force Exchange Service news release.

The biggest decline of the week also comes in the Netherlands, where a gallon of diesel will fall 15.7 cents.

The changes at AAFES pumps mirror declines in stateside prices.

With the prices of oil falling to around $120 a barrel recently, gas prices have fallen, and at least one expert is predicting prices to fall by as much as 30 cents a gallon in the next few weeks.

"If oil prices remain at the current level, one would expect at least another 20 cents a gallon, maybe 30 cents to come off in the next few weeks," Fadel Gheit, a senior energy analyst for Oppenheimer & Co., told the Daily News of New York.
