I found last week to be rather confusing. Why did prices go all the way back to $1.79? Why did prices go back down on Thursday, at least on the north side of town? My calculations say $1.69 with a 20-cent margin, and a $1.50 with no margin, and since we are close to $1.69, there should be no price hike this week. That would be WRONG, as the price hiked to $1.80 in Standale on Tuesday.

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.
