NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- With gas prices near record highs, experts say $4-a-gallon gasoline is just around the corner.Also of note: crude oil prices are down. That means someone is making TONS of money off these higher prices at the pump. But not to worry, I’m sure it’s being put to good use.
"I think it's going to happen," said Phil Flynn, a senior market analyst at Alaron Trading in Chicago. "Unless things change dramatically, I think we're going to see $4 a gallon."
Trying to make sense of all of this is a fool’s errand for mere mortals (that is, non-oil industry executives).
