Tuesday, March 16, 2010, 8:00 PM: Yes, it has been too long since my last post. My busyness continues, and then I traveled during my Spring Break last week. Looks like the “expect a hike” alert from 2/25 was right, because we have had two hikes since then, and I predict a nasty one coming up by the end of the week, perhaps all the way to $2.99. The culprits: the March switch-over to summer gas and, as I have been repeating over-and-over for a couple of years, now, the correlation between gas prices and the stock market. On 2/25/09, a gallon of gas was $1.71 in Standale, and the Dow was about to bottom out around 6600. Today, the Dow is heading towards 11,000, and gas is heading to $3 a gallon. I’d fill up Wednesday morning. — Ed Aboufadel

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.
