Commence walking now

We filled up last night for about $2.27 for the low-grade stuff. Personally, I have made a bet with many people that gas will hit $5 per gallon before Bush leaves office, but it was not the price which caused me alarm.

It was what the attendant said.

"We only have 87 octane," he told my spouse, who went to inspect the W.C. "That's what I'm getting anyways," I said. Then I realized that meant they had no higher octane fuel to sell.

How high do do you suppose it will go after the next president leaves office?
