3:00 PM: If you have been reading my predictions closely this month, you’ll notice I have been a week off. Oct. 9: prices will fall soon to $2.50. That didn’t happen until Oct. 21. Oct. 14: perhaps some dramatic drops. That didn’t kick in until after Oct. 20. Oct. 19: Could we go as low as $2.25? That didn’t happen until this weekend. Last Tuesday: price hike this week. That didn’t happen … yet, but it given my track record in October, it will happen this week, right? Actually, the numbers bear this out, as the 20-cent margin price is $2.37 and we are more than a dime under that in a lot of places. Expect Speedway and the rest to reset prices before Friday. Nope. Prices kept falling, down to $2.01 by Monday morning in Wyoming. WRONG again.

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.
