Thursday, May 5, 2011, 9:30 PM: Wow. I wrote Tuesday night about the plunge in silver prices, “don’t be surprised if gold is next, then oil and gas, and then stocks.” I wasn’t predicting that this would happen this week! Today, though, as you may have heard elsewhere (including in the comments of our previous post), wholesale prices dropped about a quarter dollar a gallon, and unprecedented one-day drop, and gold and stock prices were down, too. Will this continue on Friday? That isn’t the point of this web site. The point is to predict that retail prices will start dropping significantly, perhaps starting tomorrow, heading for below $4 a gallon. So, c’mon Speedway and friends, you love to pass along those wholesale hikes. Time to pass along this steep drop! — 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.
