Wholesale prices rose on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of last week. The Tuesday rise contributed to the new price last Thursday of $2.29 rather than $2.24. Thursday and Friday’s rise didn’t seem so drastic that we would get another price hike today, but we have, to $2.35. Of course, wholesale prices are down today as I write this, so the new price may be discounted quickly. We are still running 3 cents under the usual 20-cent margin price, though. I expect that to change in May, as the last few years, prices in May have run about 3 cents over the 20-cent margin price. Yes, the new price sure was “discounted quickly”, as Speedway gave back the price hike on Wednesday, and most stations followed.

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.
