Comment on the April 6 prediction: Technically, I was WRONG. Some stations reset to $3.89 the next day, but the hike to $3.99 didn’t arrive until Monday the 11th.
Sunday, April 17, 2011, 3:00PM: A price re-set has spread around the area this weekend, with the retail price back to $3.99. This is consistent with what happened to the wholesale price, which slipped early in the week and then came back to where it was Friday which led to Monday’s hike to $3.99. Weekend hikes have been rare, and now we have seen two in a month, thwarting gas gamers everywhere. — Ed Aboufadel
