Spring is a terrible time to buy gas. The closer we get to May 1 -- the day that every fuel station in the country has to switch to summer-blend gasoline -- the higher prices typically go. That's because the supply of "regular" gas gets scarcer as refineries ratchet down production in advance of the changeover. With regular unleaded gasoline currently hovering around $3.43 per gallon, it's likely that we'll be flirting with $4 prices before long.
