It looks like there's very little in the way left of a respite on the gas pricing front, with the cost-per-gallon of the dead-dinosaur stuff costing more than 12 cents more this week in Michigan than the week prior according to the Freep. That pegs a gallon of gas at around $2.81 a gallon — 11 cents higher than they were one year ago. But the real news comes from Amos Lewis Jr., a sales manager with MGS Express Delivery in Dearborn who claims

"I saw gas at $2.75, but I'm anticipating it will go up to $4..."

With such a reputable source for comment, we totally understand why the title of the piece was written as is. You go and fill up now before it hits $5, while we go and cry a little from all of the sensationalism.

You think gas is high now? It could reach $4 a gallon [Freep]

@imoody:

The only thing that will stop people from purchasing vehicles that are far larger than what they actually need is ballooning gas prices. My car costs me about $60 per month in gas (Scion xA hatch), and I commute 30 miles to work and back. I honestly expect gas prices to eventually double and triple, and I purchased my car with that knowledge in mind. All these gas-price-whiners just choose to ignore logic and research in the face of keeping their SUV for whatever ungodly reason. A lot of them just don't want to know WHY gas prices are going up. Hiding your head in the sand isn't going to help you when the inevitable comes. And good luck selling the Excursion then, genius.

What limited resource HASNT ballooned in price when the supply shows signs of slowing?
