Sweet Mary, Mother of God, I just passed an Exxon station charging $4.19 for a gallon of regular gas

I can only go back to one of my favorite stupid news quotes, from an April issue of BusinessWeek last year (article not currently online):
"Everyone likes to hype $4 gasoline because it's sexy," says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst for the Oil Price Information Service, an energy consulting firm. "The reality is that we're nearing the highs of the year, and within 30 days there will be more gasoline on the market. You might see $4 in tony places such as Beacon Hill or Beverly Hills, where they wear the price as a badge of honor."

Remember, people, if an erection lasts longer than four hours, call your doctor local oil vendor immediately.

And you'll definitely see $4.05/gallon in cosmopolitan places such as Beacon and Lake Carmel, NY

Atlanta just hit the $4.00 mark in a few places. I haven't had to pay that yet, but it is probably inevitable. And oh so NOT sexy.
