Sunday, August 19, 2012, 9:45AM: Have we topped out for the summer? Since the August 10 re-set to $3.99, retail prices have been dropping into the $3.70’s, in part because wholesale prices have been falling, too. Seems like they are getting those refineries and pipelines fixed. We’ll keep monitoring the brother-calls theory. As of Friday’s close, I calculate a price-to-retailers of $3.67 a gallon, which corresponds to a price floor of $3.57. With $3.75 being the cheapest in Grand Rapids, we have room to drop further. So, the earliest I would anticipate a price hike in Thursday, and that depends on how the markets trade the next few days. Prediction: falling prices continue. — 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.
