Comment on the April 20 prediction: Prices rose last Tuesday to $3.69, so the prediction was CORRECT.
Monday, April 28, 2008, 4:10 PM: Despite the record-high gas price, there is some evidence that the retailers are actually taking it easy on us, compared to what they are paying. Still, wholesale prices look like they are up about a dime the past week, which means a hike to $3.79 could be coming tomorrow or Wednesday. I don’t have the sense of certainty that I often have with predictions, but I still will make this an official prediction. Since I’m almost on empty, I am going to fill up tonight.
