Go buy gas today. I got this tidbit from a friend in the gasoline industry: “NYMEX prices today are not representative of what is happening in some of the key cash markets. Gulf Coast prices for gasoline have soared this morning on prospects of refinery run cuts, or even refinery damage, as Hurricane Lili approaches the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coasts.” Grand Rapids prices are affected by Gulf Coast prices. CORRECT! Prices went up to $1.53 on Thursday the 4th.
