attic isulation/gap at gable wall

Hi All,

Recently noticed that the fiberglass batting in my attic joists does not go all the way up to the gable wall, but rather leaves a gap of an inch or two. This puzzuled me. I undestand the need to have roof decking vented and not have the insulation in contact with it, but this is a wall Not like it's going to develop an ice dam or is it? I would not bother asking, but my concern is energy loss through this crack from the bedroom right below it, especially considering the fact that I have a power vent in the gable louver that could be pulling conditioned air from this bedroom. Guess my question is: is it supposed to be this way and why, or did the builder just run out of insulation?

Any advice is appreciated.
