This link really made me chuckle, in a sad way. No, four-dollar gas isn't "next"--it's now. I stopped at one of the lower-priced gas stations on the way home from work and paid $3.99 per gallon. I've read that this is a record high for this time of year. Yippee.
Just wait until the pricier summer fuels start filling up the pumps. Bring on the lawn chairs; I think I'll be spending a good part of this summer on my own patio.
