Violence in iraq is pushing u.s. gasoline prices higher, depriving drivers of the usual price break between memorial day and july fourth. the national average price of $3.68 per gallon is the highest price for this time of year since 2008, the year gasoline hit its all-time high. the good news is that gasoline is not likely to spike above $4 as it did 6 years ago. or even cross $3.90, as in 2011 and 2012.
