With the price of gas above $3.50 a gallon in all but one state, there are signs that Americans are cutting back on driving, reversing a steady increase in demand for fuel as the economy improves.(AP Photo/Reed Saxon)

Gas Prices
A bicyclist waits at an intersection between competing gas stations and multiple posted gas prices Monday, April 18, 2011, in Seattle. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are blaming commodity speculators for pushing up the price of gasoline and the two held a news conference Monday in Seattle to call for federal regulators to crack down on speculation. The AAA auto club reports the average price of gas in Washington is $3.92, nine cents higher than the national average. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
