    Traders work the crude oil options pit at the New York Mercantile Exchange Thursday, Sept. 1, 2011 in New York. Gasoline is near the highest it's ever been for this time of year, just ahead of the Labor Day weekend. The run-up in oil prices this year, combined with a rash of refining problems throughout the U.S., has boosted pump prices. The national average on Thursday is $3.629 per gallon. Drivers will pay more for gasoline this Sept. 1 than in any other year except 2008, when pump prices hit an average of $3.686. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)
