Here in San Jose the cheapest I have seen it today was $4.59 a gallon. Do you think gas will hit $6 or more?
$3.38 here in Houston, $3.97 back home on Long Island, $4.89 in NYC.
Give it a year, we'll see mid-$5 marks across the country, then it'd slowly creep its way up to $6.
It will happen, just a question of when.
What people also fail to realize that we have the cheapest gas prices of any western country. Toss American SUVs and pick-ups into the middle of the UK, Norway, Sweden, Germany... anywhere in Europe, and they'll be sold quick.
Manufacturers should start working on selling those little 1.0L little zippity cars here in the US market, because they'll be a market for them in the near future.
Prices in CA will drop soon. This is temporary.

Premium is about $4.90, here - Diesel is a good $.50 cheaper, and still $.25 cheaper than regular.

It's $7.70 a gallon here in Düsseldorf..... Diesel is about $7.20 a gallon.
Thankfully, the fat yellow thing gets 60+ mpg, and the smallish blue thing gets about 43.....
So, uh, quit yo bitchin'.

California in particular has some specific problems right now. Prices have been coming down here in Ontario over the last two weeks, so I'm not feeling that pain. It's come from about $4.92 on track for $4.55 (converted), and was as high as $5.22 a month ago.
Gas prices usually come down a bit after the end of summer. They're on track to again. The delay was partially due to the Middle East embassy protests, the 9/11 embassy attack in Libya, and lingering effects of Iranian oil coming off the market.
I am sure $6 will happen sooner or later. Not this year, not nationwide though.
California's gas price spike is related to A) Refinery problem limiting B) a Cali specific blend. They just need to open up Cali to the same gas blend the rest of the US has (at sub-$4/gal. prices) and their prices will return to normal.
I'm only fighting with @Pace_Foods in order to gain the attention of @danicamckellar. It's like a real mellow John Hinckley situation.
