Tuesday marks the 1,000th day in a row that the national average price of gasoline has been above three dollars a gallon.
The current streak began in December of 2010. That's the longest stretch of time on record that gas prices have been above three bucks a gallon. AAA forecasts the national average will remain above three dollars a gallon for at least another thousand days, barring a major economic recession. The streak is even worse in Ohio. Gas has been above three dollars a gallon in the buckeye state for 1,001 days.
