Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

A couple of stations here actually dropped regular back down to $2.81 today.

Bob Dole fully expects a pointless $0.20 jump Monday at noon.

Unfortunately, we just entered our "rainy season" and Bob Dole is stuck driving the 23 mpg vehicle instead of the bike. If the rocket scientists at work decide to **** us out of any sort of raise again this year, it's going to get ugly.

The VW does great, and I limit my driving to back-and-forth to school. I can get by on 2 fill-ups a month.

If gas prices are like this all summer, I'll have no choice but to sell my season tickets for the year. Making the trip from STL - KC 8 times, plus lodging, food and other expenses is just gonna be too much.

Diesel out here is $2.99. While regular unleaded is no cheaper than $3.29. Now, I'm uneducated about the whole gas pricing system and all, but if there was ever price gauging going on I would assume it's the first time in my life I've ever seen Diesel less expensive than unleaded.

ATLANTA (CNN) -- The price of gasoline has hit a new record high, averaging $3.07 for a gallon of self-serve regular in the United States, a survey reported Sunday.

When inflation is factored in, the new price trails the all-time high in March 1981. At the time, gasoline cost $1.35 a gallon -- in today's dollars, that's $3.13 a gallon, said Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the Lundberg Survey.

Still, in raw numbers, the $3.07 beats the previous high of $3.03 in August of 2006.

Actually Diesel has been lower many times, it really just seems to depend on how slow the retarded oil companies are about adjusting what they are making. Like every year knowing they are going to have to switch to summer gas, but not having the capacity to handle the change.

An update...

"EIA projects a U.S. average retail price in the $2.90s during June and July, after averaging above $3.00 per gallon in May. This projection assumes no significant unplanned refinery outages or crude oil production losses.

Prices could rise back again above $3 per gallon in August, should demand at the end of summer surge, as it often does. Whether gasoline prices set a new record (in nominal dollars) next week is still in doubt. What is clearer is that gasoline prices are expected to remain at or close to $3 per gallon for much of the summer. Although many oil market analysts have talked about the potential for retail gasoline prices reaching $4 per gallon this summer, EIA does not expect the U.S. average price to get anywhere close to that level as long as the oil infrastructure remains largely unaffected this summer. This year is certainly shaping up to be one in which consumers will likely see high gasoline prices throughout the summer months."
