    In this photo taken Wednesday, April 11, 2012, a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train is shown during a tour of the BART Maintenance Yard in Hayward, Calif. Driven by high gas prices and an uncertain economy, Americans are turning to trains and buses to get around in greater numbers than ever before. The aging trains and buses they?re riding, however, face an $80 billion maintenance backlog that jeopardizes service just when it?s most in demand. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)

    FILE - This Wednesday, March 21, 2012 file photo shows prices at a Shell station in the Wilshire district of Los Angeles. Why the seasonal spike in gas prices during spring? It?s the time of year refineries reduce output to repair equipment and start making a cleaner, more expensive blend of gasoline for summer. The average price of gasoline could surpass $4 per gallon nationwide as early as mid-April 2012. Strong global demand, heightened tensions with Iran and a smattering of supply disruptions have kept crude oil prices elevated for months. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon, File)

    FILE - In this Friday, March 16, 2012 file photo, Henry Rice, of Atlanta, pumps gas, at a station in Atlanta. Americans' rosy outlook about the U.S. economy remains resilient as they focus on the good in the barrage of conflicting economic news. A widely watched barometer of consumer confidence barely budged in March after hitting its highest level since before the financial crisis began in the previous month. Americans continued to be upbeat in March despite mixed economic signs. The stock market is up, but gas prices are, too. Unemployment is falling, but home prices also are declining.

    A man refuels his car as gas prices are reflected into the windows of the United Oil gas station in Los Angeles, California March 24, 2012. China has hiked retail gasoline prices twice in six weeks to a quarter more than those in the United States, a move that's suddenly made Beijing's metro an attractive option for 27 year-old accountant Liu Jia who would normally prefer his Honda Accord. Half way across the globe in the United States, the world's top oil-consumer, the pain of high gasoline prices is being felt more keenly. Picture taken March 24, 2012.

    An employee updates gas prices at a gas station in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, April 14, 2010. China may be the world's No. 2 oil consumer and have the world's biggest vehicle market but current high oil prices are unlikely to dent growth in fuel demand much or sales of fuel-guzzling sports utility vehicles. The country, which imports 56 percent of the oil it needs, is set to lead global oil demand again this year by contributing nearly half of the world's incremental fuel use, although the pace has slowed.

    In this Feb. 21, 2012 photo, the pump at a Shell Oil gas station shows a purchase of more than $68.73 for 15.6 gallons of gas prices in Del Mar, Calif. Americans have pumped less gas every week for the past year. It's a slide that's now longer than the decline seen during the recession. Soaring pump prices have forced people to drive less and buy more efficient cars. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)

    A car coming from North Carolina turns into the Lake Wylie Minimart in Lake Wylie, S.C. on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. The store's owner thought his business was in South Carolina, but surveyors have determined it is actually in North Carolina, meaning his gas prices will likely go up 30 cents and he can't sell fireworks.
