Happy New Year to everyone. I’ve been busy with the holidays, the stomach flu, and a trip to Atlanta. Meanwhile, the retailers have been busy raising prices. Right now, it looks like another price hike is in store for Thursday. As of the end of business Tuesday, futures prices are indicating a 20-cent margin price of $1.93, and prices are down to $1.79 in certain places. If the DOE report tomorrow causes a big change in wholesale prices, I’ll post again, but otherwise, expect a price hike on Thursday. The price prediction was perfect, but the hike came on Wednesday, not Thursday, so 1/2 CORRECT, 1/2 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.
