Wow, another move up in oil and gasoline futures late last week. Combine that with some sort of Chicago premium this winter, and a certain red-tinged retailer’s aggressive maintenance of their margins lately, and that means another price hike this week, to $1.89. I imagine this will happen on Tuesday, again. (The only time in my memory that gas was this price was the night of 9/11/2001.) Well, I was about 1/4 CORRECT and 3/4 WRONG. Prices didn’t go up until Thursday, and then only to $1.79, and then only at certain stations. By Saturday, prices were $1.72 again in Standale.

- Best guess is a system-wide reset before the holiday weekend -- back to $2.39. Read this for more: https://t.co/QbBEWHsgbE 03:11:57 PM June 27, 2017 from Twitter Web Client

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.
