Comment on the November 11 prediction: Not too hard to predict that prices will drop over the weekend. They stayed above $3.40 in a lot of places, though, so I am going to score this as 1/2 CORRECT, 1/2 WRONG.
Wednesday, November 16, 2011, 7:40PM: How is the rest of this week going to play out? You may be hearing that oil prices are soaring (now over $100 a barrel), but wholesale gas prices have been steady this week after dropping a lot last week, apparently due to weak demand. We need to get down to $3.15 or so before there is a hike, so I predict that we will be safe until at least Monday. Diesel, on the other hand, continues to rise, due to shortages in the Midwest. This link from GasBuddy explains why. –Ed Aboufadel
