Pumped up (but not down)

Kudos to CNBC for airing this nugget of information a few minutes ago:

On Feb. 19, 2008, when the price of oil first surpassed $100 a barrel, the average price of gasoline in the United States was $3.04 per gallon.

Today, Sept. 11, 2008, with oil about to pass through the $100 level on the way down, gas is averaging $3.67 a gallon.

I eagerly await an explanation ... from someone ... anyone ... please!
