ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I've been reporting for nearly 25 years and I have yet to unlock the mystery of predicting gas prices.

It's beyond my comprehension how they can be $3 a gallon one week and near $4 a gallon the next.

I know so-called experts have predicted for years that $5 dollars a gallon is around the corner.  I've just assumed that the so-called experts were wrong.  I've been hoping it won't happen.

I guess it's coming at some point.  We love gas.  We love to drive.

So even though you hate these gas prices as much as I do, we shouldn't be surprised.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
