On March 7, wholesale unleaded gasoline was $1.16 a gallon. Last Friday, it was $0.77. That’s a 33% drop in wholesale prices. Retail prices have been slow to adjust. Take 33% off of the high of $1.80 in March, and you get $1.20. Of course, it isn’t that simple, and retailers have gasoline sitting in their tanks they paid more for a few weeks ago, but as new supplies come into town, prices should continue to drop. I don’t see a price hike this week, just drops of 1 to 3 cents a day. Next week, we’ll start thinking about the “10-cent Chicago Summer Premium”. A price hike to $1.49 spread slowly across the area on Thursday, so I was WRONG!

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.
