I’m posting today because there is a lot of weirdness going on. Tuesday’s price hike to $1.79 has apparently not been matched by everyone, particularly along Michigan Avenue, and the Speedway there is already down to $1.69. The US Dept. of Energy reports on the “This Week in Gasoline” website that last week Midwest gas prices were on average six cents *lower* than on the East Coast. Then there was yesterday’s action in the futures markets in New York, where wholesale prices rose to a 13-year high, with oil over $38 a barrel. It doesn’t quite all add up to me right now, which means we should just keep a close eye on everything.

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.
