$4 gasoline is just around the corner - actually, it's already here in 23 states, according to AAA, whose Daily Fuel Gauge shows the nationwide average for regular gas hit $3.782, vs. $3.777 the day before and $3.347 a month ago. Blame it on widening crack spreads due to planned and unplanned refinery outages, higher global demand for petroleum products, and especially low crack spreads late last year.
