My crystal ball is very murky about tomorrow, so I’m not going to make a prediction. Here’s what we do know: based on current prices, the 0-cent margin price (with an 8-cent Chicago Summer Premium) is $1.72, and the 20-cent margin price is $1.93. There is at least one station in town selling gas for $1.74, but there are others in the upper $1.80’s. So, if there is a price hike tomorrow, for some stations, it won’t be much. If there isn’t a price hike on Thursday, then there won’t be one on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday either. Since I’m getting low on gas, I will be filling up late today, just to be safe. There was a price hike to $1.89 on Thursday.

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.
