Spidey-sense says “re-set to near $3.19 coming”

Comment on last week’s prediction:  Prices did keep falling, down to $3.02 on Tuesday the 12th, so the prediction was CORRECT.

Tuesday, June 12, 2007, 2:45 PM:  In past years, prices tended to go lower in June, with a minimal number of price hikes.  This year, we are thankfully seeing the same, but the month isn’t over yet.  With wholesale prices in the Midwest at about $2.37, that corresponds to a 20-cent margin price close to $3.17.  We have a good number of stations under $3.10 right now, so I sense a price re-set coming, in the $3.15-$3.19 range.  For a few stations, that will mean lowering their prices, but I predict this re-set will occur by the end of the week.

  1. With today’s cost $2.999 is a 14 cent markup, which is what most of us hope to average. So, $3.05 is the actual 20 cent markup price.

    Unless the DOE report is bad today, I would assume most of the station South of Mt. Pleasant will be under $3 by the end of the week.

    Just like the fist time we went over $3, Speedway won’t go over it until the have no choice. That means, we would need to have 10-15 cents worth of increases. The DOE report would have to be really bad to make that happen this week.
