The national average for a gallon of unleaded regular gas is expected to reach $2.70 at some point in May or June, according to an AAA forecast released Thursday.

    $2.70 is still a bargain compared to $4 it hit not long ago. Interest rates are climbing ~~ maybe that and $4 at the pump will slow the industry down to the point they begin making a quality product.
