On Monday, the average price of regular gasoline in the US rose to $3.565, marking an increase of 1.5 percent from the week-ago average price of $3.511 and a whopping 12.5-percent rise from the year-ago average price of $3.168.

Here is the hardest thing for some (including myself at times) to get over. Not only gas prices in the past 10-15 years have changed, but the price of vehicles have gone up, communications have expanded dramatically, the way we look at thing has changed so much in a short period of time. Us old timers (any over 40 years old) grew up in a somewhat different world. We best get over change and live.

I know I cannot afford for the gas prices to be higher! I have a hard enough time surviving with all the other prices going up too!

The question of whether gas will reach $4.00 a gallon is a foregone conclusion, in my view. The question is how much past $4.00 a gallon will it ends up?

Yes, and there is absolutely no reason for this. The average consumer can barely afford anything as the gas prices affect every single thing.
