New poll asks Americans to list their price cap for gas

It looks like five is the new four, at least when it comes to gas prices.

A new Gallup poll asked Americans, "What is the price of gasoline at which you would significantly alter your lifestyle?" and, "At what point would you have to significantly cut back in spending in other areas?"

The answer was between $5.30 and $5.34.

$4 used to be the magic number.

Pew Research asked Americans who they blame for the high gas prices, and there was no one answer.

Obama got 18-percent. The oil companies got 14-percent and the situation in Iran and the Middle East was at 11-percent.

Only about 4-percent of the blame went to speculation.
