Thursday, March 22, 2012, 9:15AM: Well, to be an optimist, at least the relentless rise in wholesale and retail gas prices that started at the beginning of February seems to be tapering off. NYMEX futures prices have been stable since March 9, while Chicago wholesale prices have stayed flat for more than a week. Based on my calculations, though, retailers are paying about $3.99 a gallon for their gas, which means that prices could drift down to $3.89 (what I call the 0-cent margin price) or re-set to $4.09. Clearly, Big Red and friends are reluctant to push prices over $4 in the area. They tried in Indiana the past weekend, but it didn’t stick. Hard to predict if they take another shot at $4.09 or not today or tomorrow. –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.
