Storage temperature does make a difference, if the temperature remains at a fairly constant temperature that would make the paint last longer in the can. If your temperature range is a constant between 70 and a bit higher, temperature should not be a factor. One of the previous posts also mentioned that you have 1/2 gallon of paint in a 1 gallon can...he is correct in opening the can to make sure it hasn't skinned over. If it hasn't, shake it up and try it on a test panel.
