NYMEX futures prices have fallen 44 cents a gallon since September 28, and while I understand this hasn’t been translating very quickly into cheaper wholesale prices, finally this weekend we are beginning to see this reflected at the pumps. $2.76 is the cheapest in town right now in Wyoming, although Meijer’s in Standale last night gave me a coupon for 50 cents off per gallon, allowing me to fill up today at $2.31 a gallon! I’m going to predict that prices continue to fall this week, and somewhere in the area, gas will be $2.50 a gallon by Thursday morning. I guess I was a bit ambitious — prices have been falling, but we didn’t get to $2.50, so 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.
