Happy Thanksgiving to all our faithful readers! We here at TheGasGame are thankful for so much- especially you, our audience! You’ve helped transform this website into what it has become today, so thank you!
On to the gas price news…
I’m expecting a gas price hike here very soon as the market has closed up two days in-a-row for the first time in a while. Some stations are definitely at the 0-cent margin this morning ($1.50 at a Meijer) and next time they fill their tanks will start losing money if they don’t adjust. If Black Friday is still a normal business day with oil companies (I’m noticing more and more companies starting to call Black Friday an "official company holiday" [i.e. UPS]), then prices should rise… but I’m not sure what companies are now closed for BF, so who knows.
If oil companies and such TAKE OFF Friday, we won’t see the hike until Monday.
If oil comanies and such ARE OPEN and WORKING Friday, we’ll likely see the price hike Friday morning.
The expected hike will be $1.79-$1.99 (huge range there, I know), so just to be safe I would definitely fill up before shopping Friday morning!
Enjoy your turkey and watching the Lions lose.
