Gas could top $4 nationwide this week (Reality reminder)
CNN Money ^ | 05/02/11 | Ben Rooney

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- After jumping more than 3 cents over the weekend, gas prices across America could top $4 a gallon this week, according to one industry analyst.

"We're going to hit $4 this week, nationally," said Tom Kloza, chief analyst at the Oil Price Information Service. "There's enough momentum to take us up there."

As of Monday, the national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline now stands at $3.952, according a daily survey from motorist group AAA. That's up from $3.943 a gallon on Sunday and continues a 44-day streak of gas price increases.

Did this guy take a trip in the Way Back Machine? We are heading towards $4.25 wherever I go. $4.00 is old news. It is time to start thinking about $5.00.

I’ll take two more big weekend hits this summer because I live close to Michigan Speedway. We always get a spike on race weekends due to race traffic.

This is a national average from AAA.

Although I too find it hard to believe. Places like California are heading to $5. So to average it under $4 would mean some states are still in the low-mid 3s. Where are these states? LOL!

I saw a couple of $4 signs today in NH for the first time.

Highest I’ve seen in Central NC is $3.90. Average is $3.80-$3.85. The $4 psychological barrier is holding the price down, at least for now.

“Under my plan, energy prices will necessarily skyrocket.” —Barack Hussein Obama

This is a good quote to use in the post-it note campaign next time you fill up at the gas station.

I got an email from Gas Buddy advising of the hike, and Meijer confirmed it on Facebook a short time later. Seems there’s a refinery/distribution problem in either Illinois or Indiana, which is hitting the Great Lakes area hard.

Geez, like we weren’t hit before.

At my gas station here in the western ‘burbs of Chitown, it had been at $4.299 when it dropped to $4.279 last week and stayed there a few days. Today on my way into work it was at $4.379, and on the way back home it was at $4.459 . $5, here we come.

Yeah right, CNN. Maybe last week.

Filled up last Monday @ $3.87/gallon. Same station a couple of hours ago, $4.19. (32 cents in just the past week)

At this rate we’ll easily blow by nationwide $5.00 averages by Memorial Day.

Thanks N0bama!
