It has been observed by Patrick DeHaan that the Dept. of Energy report on Wednesday morning has had a major impact on wholesale prices, particularly lately. That is what happened last week, and prices are dropping. As of lunchtime today, Friday’s wholesale prices are holding, which translates to 0-margin retail price of $1.64. So, I predict continued price drops this week to the mid-$1.60’s, followed by a price hike, on Wednesday or Thursday, to around $1.84. The Wednesday DOE report might throw a wrench in that prediction, though. Instead of a price hike, a price war has broken out on Lake Michigan Drive, with prices as low as $1.57 this afternoon. Big WRONG 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.
