Last week’s jump in futures prices looks like a temporary spike, as oil is getting close to $35 a barrel. Of course, that just gets us back to where we were a few weeks ago. If retail prices continue dropping to $1.64 or lower, expect a price hike on or about Thursday to at most $1.79, since it seems that when the range of prices gets too much in town, that’s when the price hike occurs. On the other hand, if prices are steady the next few days, I don’t think they’ll raise prices. On Wednesday, prices got down to $1.68 and then rose to $1.84 all over town. Do I get partial credit for having the amount of the price hike (16 cents) to within a penny? No, I don’t. 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.
