NATIONAL -- Tuesday marks the 1,000th consecutive day the average price of gasoline is $3.00/gallon. Triple-A says the $3.00 threshold started after Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf, destroying oil rigs.

It estimates that unless there's another recession, high gas prices may be here to stay. On the bright side, while the average price hasn't dipped below $3.00, it also hasn't averaged above $4.00.
