The price hike two weeks ago, to $1.88, corresponded with a spike in wholesale/future prices. Since then, those prices have dropped like a rock, but retail prices are taking their time. With the 10-cent Chicago Summer Premium, the 0-cent margin price today is $1.41, and the 20-cent margin is $1.63. Since prices are still above $1.63 everywhere, expect further price drops this week, and no price hike. Very, very WRONG! Prices hiked to $1.79 on Thursday, September 11.

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.
