Adobe Premiere Pro : How to move multiple "track volume" keyframes at once

    I can't find out how to automatically have adobe premiere pro 7.0 move
    every volume keyframs of a track when I insert a new clip. (Or how to
    batch move them manually either..)

    I have a project that has an audio track contains multiple clips
    (A,B,C).
    I do the fade out/in of the volume of that track using the nice
    keyframe bar on the track.
    (Lets say, for a fadeout between clip A and B, i just position my
    cursor to the end of A and, click "add keyframe", then move that
    keyframe to the bottom to make it at -00Db).
    Like this: (Sorry the drawings are not working right... but you should
    be able to understand)

    1 2 3 4 5 6
    Track | A | | B | | C |
    _______ ___________
    \______________/


    So far, so good. My problem is that when I want to insert a 2minute
    clip(#D) before clip B (right before keyframe #4) the problem is that
    the keyframes on the right (keyframes 4,5 and 6) will not move
    themselves 2 minutes away. That's what Adobe Premiere does :

    1 2 3 4 5 6
    Track | A || B | | D | C

    _______ _________________________
    \______________/


    That's what I would like it to do :

    1 2 3 4 5
    6
    Track | A || B D | | C |

    _______
    ____________
    \_______________________________/

    I just want it to automatically push back every keyframes for 2 mins. I
    could do them one by one but that would be ridiculous. I did not find
    any tool (no drag and drop?) that will allow me to select all the
    keyframes on the right (4,5,6) and just move them 2 minutes further.

    However, I noticed that when I ripple-delete a clip, let's say, clip B
    (duration : 1min) then all the keyframes on the right of the position I
    deleted (4,5,6) will automatically beadjusted -1 min. (So, deleting
    adjusts, adding doesn't.. seems odd)

    It seems to me there should be a way to do this, however I have looked
    around and couldn't find an answer. I'm new to Adobe but I don't
    understand why that feature would not exist... Please help me out !

    Thank a lot for your help, if any !
