Although volatile, futures prices ended last week about where they began. Retail prices seem to have caught up finally, as I see the low end of gas prices to be about $1.30 right now. (However, looking at the numbers the past six months, I see that I need to recalibrate my formulas, which I will do after the semester is over.) Prices could drop to $1.30, or they could throw a price hike to $1.50 at us on Tuesday or Wednesday. So, no prediction this week, but be on the lookout for any strange price movements, either up or down. I don’t think I was hallucinating when I saw $1.52 at an Admiral station on Alpine on Wednesday, but it wasn’t until Thursday that prices rose to about $1.55. Seems like I’ve been about 5 cents off for a while now.

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.
