Tuesday, October 26, 2010, 3:30PM: Last week, we got a hike in Indiana, but not in Michigan, before wholesale prices backed off. Today, retail prices are dipping into the $2.60’s, about where the 0-cent margin price is, so we are setting up for a price hike by the end of the week. Maybe the tornado warnings and violent weather in the Midwest saved us from a price hike today. I predict a new price near $2.89 before Friday. Trick or treat! — 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.
