Out and about last Wednesday, I kept coming across temporarily closed gas stations. What was up with that? Looking ahead to this week, the wild card is the oil workers strike in Venezuela. (Tensions with Iraq will continue, but I don’t expect anything major.) This is starting to look serious, and could lead to a spike in oil and gasoline prices. But, it is hard to predict. So, I’m going to be a bit of a weasel this week. If there is a price hike this week, it will be on Thursday morning, and the new price will be $1.54 or higher. CORRECT, for a conditional prediction. Gas prices went up Thursday morning, to $1.56 or so.

The name of the site is based off an essay Ed wrote for the Grand Rapids Press titled "The Gas Game". The current website was established later by Patrick DeHaan after he and Ed predicted gas price hikes on GasBuddy's website GrandRapidsGasPrices.com, as well as Ed’s personal web page.
Note: To be precise, add 9/10 of a cent to all prices described on this web page.
