According to AAA, the price of gas reached a six-year high yesterday (Wednesday) and instead of dipping a bit over the summer, as it typically does, it is expected to stay up. The national average is $3.67 a gallon, just short of the $3.70 peak in the spring. If the turmoil in Iraq gets worse, prices will surpass the spring peak for the first time since 2008 when the average reached an all-time high of $4.11.
