New High for Gas Prices 

Gas in several border communities including Houlton and Calais has topped the $4.00 mark for regular unleaded. The Web site puts the highest price at $4.40 per gallon on Vinalhaven.

Analysts had predicted the milestone would be reached this summer, but residents in those communities are unhappy to see that the magic number arrived before Memorial Day.

Overall, AAA says the average price for unleaded gasoline was $3.82 gallon Wednesday in Maine.
