Arrgh — lost the Gas Game this week. When I saw gas yesterday afternoon for $1.53 at Fuller and Leonard, I knew then that a price hike was coming, but I didn’t fill up because I thought it would be on Thursday. As noted, it is already posted on the Speedway web site — $1.76!!! The 20-cent margin price, based on yesterday’s futures prices, is $1.74, so it is starting to look like Speedway is trying to improve their margins. Let’s see how other stations follow their lead.

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.
