My Gas Price Prediction Needed More Gloom/Realism

Five weeks ago, I predicted that gas prices around here would hit $4-a-gallon no later than June 30.

My friends who call me a pessimist can now laugh at that goofy, glass-half-full (tank-half-full?) optimism, as the price for regular gas at the Clark station (usually the cheapest around) not far from my house crossed the $4 barrier overnight to $4.19.

I should have known the bump would come right before people hit the road for Memorial Day travel - - such as it may be this year.
