You better put your Hummer on blocks.

Gasoline prices could rise by about quarter a gallon in the coming days to new record levels, according to a published report Friday.

USA Today, quoting energy experts and analysts, reported that a gain of 24 to 28 cents a gallon is possible as stations scramble to keep up with recent increases in oil and wholesale gasoline prices.

An increase of 24 cents a gallon would put the average retail price of a gallon of regular gas at about $2.16 a gallon, according to the Energy Information Agency, the Department of Energy unit that tracks prices. The EIA’s survey put the average price at $1.928 in Monday’s survey, up 2.3 cents from a week earlier.

The EIA’s earlier record of $2.02 a gallon for regular was hit in May of 2004.

BTW, Sterling, have you ever had an original thought?
