Default Bouncing fuel guage

Hey guys. Just wondering if anyone would know what could cause my fuel guage to all of a sudden start bouncing around? It doesn't do it all the time, but once in awhile it starts to bounce up and down a little. It doesn't seem to matter what level the fuel in the tank is at.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated

Any ideas? Could the sending unit cause this to happen in our cars?
