Prices are going to have to leap $.553 for Premium to tickle $5.00 by the weekend. Right now the average National Premium price is $4.447.

Here in Lexington, for the first time ever we have a split from the 10/10/10 paradigm and Premium is .25 higher than Regular at $4.249.

$.553 seems like a pretty big leap unless Bushie decides to Nuke Iran Friday morning.

Where do you buy gas in Texas that expensive? Current AAA average for Texas is $4.30

Premium here in SoCal is practically $5 anyway so I am not even stressing, because its only a $5 difference on every full tank from what it is now and when it will hit $5 a gallon. The only real way to offset gas prices is to make more money, and frankly I don't for see any of these prices going down to $3 and under ever again in my life time.
