Meijer “competition”

Wholesale prices rose slowly at the end of last week, indicating a 20-cent margin price (with HU/RB averaging) of $3.12. Although prices were below $3 in most places on Monday morning, given how slowly I thought retail prices were dropping over the weekend, and the slight lowering of tensions in the Middle East, I thought we’d get through Monday without a price hike, so I didn’t fill up this morning. (I was planning a “price hike on Tuesday” prediction.) But oil prices are up today, and the NYMEX price is up 3 cents, so Speedway has hiked to $3.19, grabbing a bit more margin that usual. We’ll see if the competition keeps them in check, but at least in Standale, I’ve been disappointed in Meijer’s competitive spirit since the Citgo closed.
