This morning, crude oil is about $55 a barrel, and wholesale prices are about $1.40 a gallon. That corresponds, with a 20-cent margin, to $2.13 a gallon. The cheapest gas in town is about $2.00 a gallon, and that 13-cent difference suggests another price hike is in the cards this week, although probably not until Thursday. I’ll update Wednesday if necessary. On 10/20 at 8:30AM, I rescinded this prediction.

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.
