On the postive side, wholesale prices have been dropping since peaking on July 7. This has led to prices as low as $2.16 in town this morning. However, the 0-cent margin price is $2.14. So, unless wholesale prices continue to drop the next two days, expect a price hike on Wednesday or Thursday, to somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.35. A price hike did occur to $2.36, but not until Monday 7/25. In the meantime, a price war broke out in Kentwood, with prices as low as $1.97 a gallon on Monday morning before the price hike occured. So, the prediction was 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.
