Another method is to recognise that a title is defined within a textbox, and can take options allowed for the textbox. So we could use the dimensions of the box (which you don't see, by default) to induce the appearance of a gap.
Also along these lines, you can use the margin() option of textboxes to set the margins around the title:

graph twoway scatter mpg price, ytitle("My Title", margin(0 5 0 0) )

This, for example, set the bottom margin of the title to 5 (the arguments are in the order top bottom left right). See help textbox_options.
